Rethinking Post-Acute Care to Drive Value

  • October 30, 2018
  • 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET
  • Online
about

It’s time to rethink post-acute care strategies in order to drive value. Innovation is born from identifying and understanding what’s not working.  A great example is post-acute care (PAC); spending has more than doubled in the last decade alone [1] with no end in sight; and Medicare PAC expenditure is nearly $60 billion per year [2]. This is a significant area of untapped cost savings opportunity for health insurance providers; and now is the time to innovate. Webinar attendees can expect an interactive experience with live-polling and real-time results discussed throughout the event.

Healthcare insurance providers will discover how to revolutionize their post-acute care services with topics including:

  • Areas of greatest opportunity for the future of healthcare delivery
  • How technology can enable better healthcare
  • Using data to manage out of control costs and waste
