  • January 25, 2018

Payer and provider relationships have historically been adversarial. Successful value-based reimbursement (VBR) programs transform this dynamic, leveraging data analytics to build the collaborative partnerships needed to advance payment innovation.

This webinar will provide learnings from payment innovation leaders, demonstrating how they are leveraging analytic tools to identify value-based payment opportunities and engage providers in the transition from volume to value.

Attendees will learn:

  •  Payers: Will better understand the benefits provided by value-based payment models and gain insights into steps they can take to help ease providers’ transition to these new payment models.
  • Providers: Will gain an appreciation of the quality of care improvements desired from value-based programs and better understand how payers are rewarding providers as part of this transformation.
