The Affordable Care Act set in motion a drive toward value-based care, with an emphasis on improved patient experience, quality, and cost reduction. Regardless of future legislative changes, the imperative toward these goals will remain. In this session, Dr. Nash will explore how systems can position themselves for success in this new environment, with a special focus on alternative payment models, such as bundled payments. The ‘big picture’ of population health including social determinants, integrated delivery networks, and patient-centered care will also be discussed.
