Gain the tools for short and long-term financial success in transformative times.
Health reform presents a challenge and an opportunity for driving bottom line profitability. Faced with tightening reimbursements and rewards for providing low cost services that generate shared savings, hospitals and health systems are exploring a range of risk-based models that will optimize revenue opportunities while hardwiring low-costs.
This webinar will outline best practices in structuring leading-edge reimbursement models consistent with the goals of health reform while describing cost reduction measures that will sustain long-term success for providers taking on variable levels of risk. Attendees will explore real-life case studies of emerging reimbursement models such as population health management; per-member, per-month payments; shared savings; quality and patient satisfaction incentives; bundled payments; and utilization-based incentives programs. Faculty will also describe how healthcare executives can generate new revenue streams to replace and improve upon fee-for-service. The faculty will deliver detail on practical cost-reduction steps for managing utilization, decreasing readmissions, balancing and managing observation beds, and leveraging the healthcare workforce to maximize resource allocation.
