Transforming from Volume to Value: Trends, Barriers and Keys to Success
According to an August 2017 National Business Group on Health (NBGH) survey 21% of companies are planning to contract with ACOs this year and the NBGH predicts the number of employers offering ACOs could double by 2020. Medicare has an ambitious goal to tie 90% of fee-for-service (FFS) payments to quality and 50% of spending to Alternative Payment Models (APMs) by this year.
However, the commercial market is still dominated by FFS reimbursement and both Medicare and Medicaid continue to rely heavily on FFS. Significant structural impediments make the transition from volume to value extremely challenging for providers including the lack of access to actionable data, reporting requirements, and the need to develop and finance the infrastructure necessary to take on risk.
This Webinar covers how to position your organization for success in a value-based environment. Our speakers are from Day Health Strategies, a consulting firm with extensive experience helping organizations to move from volume to value.
