This white paper examines how new technologies are creating a fully connected point of care ecosystem in outpatient facilities to enhance the interaction between patients and caregivers.

It offers suggestions for how the connected point of care ecosystem can provide a solid foundation to implement and achieve performance goals such as improved blood pressure (BP) acquisition that are tied to emerging value-based models of payment.

One such model is the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) that is part of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).
