AIS Webinar Will Feature Cigna, Leavitt Partners Execs’ Strategies for Building Value-Based Payment Models
Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) - December 7, 2015 - Washington, DC

Virtually every health insurer — and provider organizations across the United States — are testing and evaluating some type of value-based payment model. But which ones are actually succeeding at generating savings and improving outcomes? Which models have been discarded? What strategies are being used to effectively integrate providers and evaluate risk tolerance among hospitals, primary care doctors and specialists? In “Innovative Payment Models: Effective Tactics for Sharing More Risk With Hospitals and Providers,” an upcoming Dec. 16 webinar sponsored by Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS), payment innovation leaders at Cigna Corp. and Leavitt Partners Consulting will discuss which types of payment models have gained the most traction, which ones failed, and more.

Lynn Garbee, Cigna’s Senior Director of Reimbursement and Collaborative Care, Jeannie Hubbell, Cigna’s director of value-based contracting, and Andrew Croshaw, President of Leavitt Partners, will answer questions like:

  • What results has Cigna seen from its alternative payment models? Which of their strategies have worked? What pitfalls should be avoided?
  • What strategies can carriers use to convince providers to accept more risk in exchange for financial incentives?
  • When value-based programs fail, what are the chief culprits?
  • How can value-based payment models succeed in driving volume to high-quality providers?
  • What tactics can be successful in reducing costs while winning the hearts and minds of providers?
  • To what extent do which value-based models impact prescription drug use?

The webinar will run 90 minutes, which also includes a 30-minute question-and-answer session.
