Said Wright, "Today, providers have one foot on the fee-for-service dock and the other in the value-based reimbursement canoe. As VBR continues to expand as a payment model, providers need to create an effective roadmap that can help them manage and share this increased financial risk while attaining their care-management goals: better patient outcomes, reducing unjustified variation and an improved patient experience."
Wright's interactive discussion will examine core considerations for value-based contracting, explore key capabilities that can ensure success in this constantly evolving environment and identify future strategies for attaining long-term results. Continued Wright, "Transitioning to VBR requires shifts in culture, adoption of standardized best practices, new ways of using data, facilitation of clinical workflows and support for evidence-based clinical decision making. Through an engaging, wide-ranging discussion with session attendees, we will help providers identify real-world, actionable steps they can take to meet their goals."
