How Health Plans Can Maximize Medicaid Value-Based Care Reforms

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Medicaid value-based care initiatives are changing the way plans are paid. But as Medicaid programs set benchmarks and require the use of key metrics and groupers for health plan management, insurers may focus solely on compliance, claims processing and short-term savings goals rather than looking at the bigger picture. How can health plans develop or fine-tune programs that systematically encourage efficiency, cost savings and better outcomes? What kinds of technology, cultural and organizational changes should they make to implement new payment and delivery reform strategies?

Join us for a free 60-minute webinar on November 1 and hear Dr. Barbara DeBuono, vice president, market development, 3M Health Information Systems, explain exactly how Medicaid initiatives change the way plans are paid. She’ll also dig into the different types of state reform initiatives and point out the challenges and opportunities each one presents.

Webinar participants can expect to obtain valuable perspectives on key questions, including:

  • How should plans manage the organizational, cultural and technology changes that come along with payment and delivery reform?
  • How do they design provider incentives that are effective at encouraging physician change?
  • How can plans evaluate the validity of measures and instill stakeholder confidence in the data?
  • How should they scale payment models so they address large enough populations to encourage physician engagement?

Sign up today and learn where to start in making technology, cultural and organizational changes to implement new payment and delivery reform strategies.
