Specialty care accounts for about seventy percent of health care spend, but most alternative payment models focus on primary care. This overlooks a large population of patients who could benefit from value-based care. Specialists can excel in alternative payment models when three main criteria are met: the right chronic illness, the right member-reported data, and the right support. Join this session to learn how specialists are lowering health care spend and improving patient outcomes by working with commercial and government payers and leveraging that three-part formula. Attendees will learn how to engage specialists in unique alternative payment models, understand which kinds of specialties make the most sense for alternative payment model arrangements, and how to cultivate functionally collaborative relationships between payers and providers to advance value-based care.
