About the Conference

Value-based care is the future of healthcare and the shift away from fee-for-service is continuing at a steady pace. If your organization wants to give its patients a more worthwhile health care experience, a value-based care model is the solution.

Hospitals and health systems are under increased scrutiny to minimize expenses, increase patient satisfaction and improve patient outcomes. Payers, providers and other healthcare stakeholders are looking for ways to engage with value-based purchasing and alternative payment models that link claims reimbursement to value, rather than volume.

Business Research Intelligence Network’s Value-Based Healthcare Congress features leading hospitals, health systems and payor organizations who will share best practices and practical information on how to position your organization to succeed in the transition from fee-for-service to value-based care. Participate in in discussions surrounding the broader landscape of value-based care, learn how to overcome the challenges associated with transitioning to outcomes-based care, and understand how to succeed under alternative payment models and improve financial and patient outcomes.

Chairperson’s Opening Remarks

8:15am – 8:55am

Value-Based Care: The Future of Healthcare

Value-based care creates a new paradigm—treating the “whole” patient rather than just treating the disease. This session will introduce value-based care, and examine how integrating care coordination with robust analytics into a single platform provides the big picture of patient care, enabling collaborative, efficient care.

8:55am – 9:35am

Keeping Patients at the Center of Care

Healthcare professionals are looking at patient health as a long-term asset. With value-based care models abound, it is in the best interest for a hospital to keep patients as healthy as possible for as long as possible at the lowest cost possible. Any definition of high-quality medical care must take into consideration how patients perceive it, particularly when value in healthcare means delivering high-quality, patient-friendly care at the lowest cost. This session will examine keeping the patient at the center of care, and efforts to provide coordinated, high-quality care.

The Role of Connected Health in Value-Based Care

Healthcare organizations are successfully deploying connected health. Now is the time for value-based care models to fully integrate these tools, too. Hospitals and health systems across the country are using connected health to help tackle challenges associated with value-based care. Topics in this session to be discussed will include:

– Using connected health to advance patient engagement
– Creating connections through digital tools and telehealth to keep patients more involved in their own care
– How to design and implement connected care programs that produce results for patients and providers
– Minimizing clinical burdens

Optimizing Revenue Cycle Management in the Shift to Value-Based Care

The transition from fee-for-service to value-based care reimbursement has serious implications for healthcare revenue cycle management. Not only do value-based care models aim to make healthcare providers more accountable for the services they provide to patients, but they are also designed to shift financial accountability away from payers to healthcare organizations. This session will examine how healthcare providers should align their healthcare revenue cycle management strategies with value-based reimbursement arrangements.

12:05pm – 1:05pm

Lunch

1:05pm – 1:45pm

Provider and Patient Alignment for Adoption of Technologies to Advance Value Based Care

Value based care inherently places the patient at the center of the healthcare experience. Importantly the provider and patient goals for healthcare need to be aligned in any health system for successful implementation of population health strategies and telemedicine and digital health technologies. In this session we will actively address how to mold the infrastructure so that all parties become advocates for progressive iterations of health system change.

1:45pm – 2:30pm

The Role of Telehealth and Digital Health in Value-Based Care Success

With the roll-out of value-based care programs that focus on patient outcomes, health systems and health plans can also use telehealth in a proactive way, reaching out to patients facing transitions in care, closing patient gaps in care and tracking adherence for patients with chronic care management plans. This session will examine how use telehealth to create care management and coordination plans that help both the patient and the provider. Topics to be discussed will include:

– How telemedicine fits in with value-based care
– The value of telehealth in connecting providers, patients & payers
– Using telehealth to create a direct-to-patient care management platform
– Using connected care technology to collaborate with patients at home, improving recovery times and clinical outcomes
– What outcomes to measure and expect.

Panel: How Social Determinants of Health Support Value-Based Care

Integrating the Social Determinants of Health into Patient Management
As our health system continues to move towards value-based care, healthcare stakeholders are progressively regarding the social determinants of health as critical components of value. This session will examine opportunities for improving care by targeting patients’ unmet social needs and the importance of engaging patients and communities to inform quality measurement. Topics to be discussed will include:

– Improving value-based outcomes with social determinants
– Addressing social determinants of health, including access to care, food and housing security, and health literacy
– Strategies for assessing patients, stratifying risk populations, and connecting patients to socioeconomic services
– Impactful community strategies for patient engagement
– Developing community relationships and coalitions

A Model for Value-Based Care Across the Care Continuum

While most payers have been slow to embrace models that would incentivize value-based care delivery, providers have a unique opportunity to take the lead in this endeavor. This session will examine best practices to develop a value-based care model to guide delivery systems as they design and pilot programs across the continuum of patient care and to facilitate their coordination with individual clinicians. Topics to be discussed will include:

– Aligning hospitals, physicians and other clinical providers across the continuum of care
– Scaling value-based Care efforts across the care continuum
– Reducing inefficiencies across the continuum of care
– Effective care coordination

Succeeding Under Alternative Payment Models

Payers, providers, and other healthcare stakeholders are well on their way to developing and participating in alternative payment models that link claims reimbursement to value, rather than volume. Healthcare bundled payments are a popular avenue for providers looking to engage with value-based purchasing and alternative payment models. This session will examine how to succeed under alternative payment models and improve financial and patient outcomes through value-based care.

– Aligning Value-Based Care Metrics to Improve Clinical and Financial Performance
– Success strategies for qualifying and quantifying quality metrics
– The relationship between value-based care and quality measurement
– How producing actionable insights from quality measurement initiatives support value-based care
