Disrupting the Market: Responding to Employer Needs with Episodes of Care

October 31, 2019 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST Webcast


In many markets across the United States, employers and health systems are starting to work together to implement alternative payment models—most notably, Episodes of Care—to improve the value of healthcare dollars spent and deliver better care. In this webinar, we'll speak to an employer and a leading provider in a local market that are currently working together to improve value.

Both employers and health systems are looking for creative solutions to drive change within the healthcare ecosystem. In this panel discussion, we will cover the various ways employers, health systems, and technology firms are thinking through the future of healthcare, specific to alternative payment models. They will address what “Episodes of Care” are, how they have evolved, and how they can be implemented to provide improved clinical outcomes at lower costs to plan members and employees.
