Aligning Care Delivery to Emerging Payment Models

Join the AHA Center for Health Innovation and Manatt Health for a new webinar on evolving care models.    Hospitals and health systems across the country are redesigning care delivery to improve quality and outcomes, enhance the patient experience, reduce costs, and ultimately produce better population health. The payment landscape for healthcare services has evolved to support providers’ transition to new care delivery models. A new report released by the American Hospital Association (AHA) Center for Health Innovation presents an overview of the successes and challenges that providers have experienced in aligning care delivery models with alternative payment models and shares lessons for those in the midst of the transition.

In a new webinar, the AHA and Manatt Health share key learnings from the report.  The webinar will:

  • Provide an overview of the changing care delivery and payment landscape
  • Discuss the capabilities providers need to succeed under these evolving models
  • Offer a “maturity model” for providers to assess their current capabilities and plan for the future
  • Highlight different approaches that providers are taking to evolve their care and payment models
  • Offer a roadmap that providers can adopt to advance along the maturity model and succeed in the evolving care delivery and payment environment

During the program, you will learn:

  • The ways that the emerging care delivery and payment landscape is changing
  • The capabilities providers need to succeed in a new environment
  • A practical roadmap you can follow to build capabilities
