Today’s value-based programs (ACOs, bundled payments, etc.) are shifting the responsibility for total spend from the payer to the provider. As the primary contractor under many of these programs, hospitals take on the responsibility for post-acute spend while generally having little experience in that area. This creates a significant challenge to create a successful and profitable programs.
This session will focus on the design and development of an effective post-acute provider network through implementation and ongoing operation. Specific areas to be covered include:
