about

Healthcare in the US is shifting from fee for service to value based payment with an emphasis on quality. The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is facilitating this transition by moving towards a quality and value system beginning in 2019. Under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), Medicare providers will receive financial incentives to improve the delivery of healthcare services and consumer health outcomes. Value-based payment (VBP) programs tie healthcare provider compensation to measureable results of the triple aim of lower cost, improved care and better health.

This session will explore how the convergence of medical and pharmacy data can be innovative in payment transformation and improve patient access to healthcare value. Learn about the direction reform is taking and gain perspective on the data you are capturing with tips to position for strategic data usage in a rapidly changing environment.

By the end of this session attendees will be able to:

  1. Understand the nuances of MACRA
  2. Evaluate VBP and APM arrangements
  3. Apply strategies to mitigate risk through convergence of data
