Bundled Payments: Evaluating the Opportunities for Your Business

  • September 15, 2016
  • 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET
  • Online

Bundled payments are one of the most promising fee-for-service alternatives, and have gained increased traction with health care reform. But payment bundling is complex and requires deep understanding and analysis of your data and effective provider relationships to facilitate care transformation. To make these arrangements work, health plans need a detailed implementation plan and analytic expertise in evaluating care and creating bundled payments.

The speakers will outline where bundled payments fit in the context of payment reform, the strategic importance for payers and providers, and how payers and providers are using data and analytics to understand payments and design care plans.

Webinar participants will learn:

  • Where bundled payments fit in the context of payment reform
  • The strategic importance of bundled payment arrangements for payers and providers
  • How payers and providers are using data and analytics to understand payments and design care plans (case studies of payers and providers in various stages of implementing bundled payments)
  • Methods used to determine payment bundling preparedness and how to get started
  • How to evaluate opportunities and risks
  • Key metrics for measuring success

Who should attend: Decision makers from health plans of all sizes. Specific titles include: C-Suite, VP of Health Informatics, VP Actuary, Network Management, Care Management, VP of National Accounts, Business Analysts, and Medical Directors
