About the Session
This session will provide an introduction to what healthcare leaders need to know about the business, legal and financial considerations for contracting directly with employers. Employers “direct contracting” with providers is becoming a closely examined model to address skyrocketing healthcare costs affecting their profitability, competitiveness, and ability to recruit and retain a highly-qualified workforce. Real-world case-study examples will be used to illustrate the promises and potential pitfalls of direct contracting with employers. The session explores a provider “readiness” self-assessment through the lens of value-based care.
- Explore what’s driving the movement to value-based care.
- Evaluate leadership and organizational readiness for direct contracting.
