Faced with growing health care costs and sub-par outcomes, the past several Congresses and Administrations have been in pursuit of alternatives to volume-based, fee-for-service provider payment. But while there is consensus about the need to implement new delivery and payment models, in Washington and in the private market, pace and precise direction of the transition to new models have become open questions.
With David Muhlestein and other payment reform leaders, we’ll assess the state of the evidence to date on broad population-based models like ACOs, disease-based models and episodic bundled payments. Then our distinguished panelists from physician groups, health plans and providers will share how some organizations have delivered exceptional results–and lay out what Congress and the Administration can do to ensure APMs actually achieve the next level of performance.
