Ongoing concerns about unsustainable costs, quality, outcomes and patient safety are driving a serious review of integrated healthcare, IT, innovation in delivery models and financing. Examine evolving models of reimbursement and the care delivery process towards the goal of higher quality, improved cost effectiveness, access to care and patient safety. Evaluate reimbursement models that provide balanced incentives to encourage high-value healthcare, and discuss the pros and cons of each from payer and provider perspectives.
After attending this program, attendees will be able to:
- Gain an understanding of emerging payment and care delivery models intended to transition U.S. healthcare from fee-for-service to fee-for-value, and observe impacts on cost, quality, access and patient outcomes.
- Discover future roles of the patient (as an educated consumer), the provider and the payer.
- Identify the IT necessary to support evolving payment models and care practices.
