Abstract

In the US, more and more our healthcare systems are causing harm at multiple levels with inferior quality of services, poor access at times to care and costly treatments. Underlying this is, albeit unconscious, a lack of respect for patients. We try to address this by proffering a new model of care co-ordination to support high value patient–centered care delivery. The presented model was developed by synthesizing relevant literature and assessing this literature based on current problems and barriers in existing models of care. The following, presents an encircled care contribution measure share model that enables patient centered value-based care to ensue. The proposed model identifies objective tracking of all clinical services by stakeholder input/feedback measures and from this inherent value and quality can be identified.

Biography

Professor Nilmini Wickramasinghe (PhD, MBA, Grad DipMgtSt, BSc). After completing five degrees at the University of Melbourne, Australia, Nilmini accepted a full scholarship to undertake PhD studies at Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead school of Management in Cleveland, Ohio USA in health informatics management and later completed an executive program in value-based healthcare at Harvard Business School. For over 20 years she has been actively, researching and teaching within the health informatics domain in both US and Australia with a particular focus on designing, developing and deploying suitable models, strategies and techniques grounded in various management principles to facilitate the implementation and adoption of technology solutions to effect superior, value-based patient centric care delivery. Professor Wickramasinghe collaborates with leading scholars at various premier healthcare organizations and universities throughout Australasia, US and Europe and is well published with more than 400 referred scholarly articles, more than 10 books, numerous book chapters, an encyclopaedia and a well established funded research track record. She holds a patent around analytics solution for managing healthcare data and is the editor-in-chief of two scholarly journals published by InderScience: Intl. J. Biomedical engineering and Technology(www.inderscience.com/ijbet) and Intl. J Networking and virtual Organisations(www.inderscience.com/ijnvo) as well as the editor of the Springer book series Healthcare Delivery in the Information Age. Currently, Nilmini is the Professor of Digital Health and the Deputy Director of the Iverson Health Innovation Research Institute at Swinburne University of Technology and inaugural Professor – Director Health Informatics Management at Epworth HealthCare. She is also an honorary research professor at the Peter MacCallum Cancer centre. My full name is Dr. Rima Artonian Gibbings and I have been involved in research and teaching for several years. I have served as the teaching assistant for several of the graduate level courses offered in the School of Public Health at the University of Illinois in Chicago and this is my first year of teaching at the University of North Georgia. I enjoy working with students to help form ideas for their research papers or review and provide feedback on projects and research studies. I also prepared and released course materials online and provided feedback to submissions and course projects. Rima Gibbings My background is a mix of technology and health care. I have a bachelor’s degree in software engineering and a master's degree in computer science. I have several years of experience working as an application developer and I enjoyed building and maintaining systems in many applications including systems that were used in the health care field. During my years of working as a programmer I have become familiarized with the complexities that are embedded within the healthcare systems and developed an interest of adopting technology in all aspects of clinical practices. This interest motivated me to pursue a doctorate in Health Policy Administration - Public Health Informatics which introduced me to a broad set of topics in public health, statistics, bioinformatics, and healthcare information systems. Although completing graduate school was a very challenging experience but it was a very rewarding one as well.
