HEALTH INSURANCE DEPARTMENT
ALAMAL Hospital introduced Health Insurance Department to help the people due to rising health care costs, increasing prevalence of chronic disease, an aging population, greater demand for quality outcomes and the recent passage to a shift toward value-based payment models focused on better population health management. Health Insurance Department approaches are focused on understanding the health needs of the community, measuring and evaluating health status, and developing collaborative programs that will improve health outcomes. As a result, ALAMAL Hospital leaders and HI Department are driving this shift toward population health management by focusing on assessment, prevention, wellness, chronic disease management and other initiatives to benefit the community. To address multiple health issues and improve the overall health status of the population, population health programs are becoming more complex and having greater reach.
Expansive and complex health programs necessitate an evolving role for hospitals and HI Department care systems, as well as greater integration with a variety of community organizations and Insurance Companies. Merging the resources and skills of hospitals and health care systems with community partners is essential for the integration and expansion of health management programs. Together, hospitals and HI Department and their Insurance Companies can create targeted population health programs that engage and communicate with the patient population and ultimately increase efficiency and quality of health care and improve health status in the community.
