The current state of healthcare reform -- Are you ready?

The proof is here - when providers share their expertise and put their heads together, you get lower costs and more quality. Accountable care organizations and medical home models stand to transform healthcare structure and costs and health plans need to act now to effectively integrate them into their benefit offerings. However, how health plans can effectively integrate these new models of care into their benefit programs and benefit from these cost savings remains at the center of “the cost conundrum”. Attend Next Generation Health Delivery to learn how to integrate innovative healthcare delivery models into value based benefit design. Participants walk away with:

• Insights from the latest Medical Home Model and Accountable Care Organization pilot programs
• Understanding of novel payment structures and implementation tools that make integration possible
• First hand experience from the those already benefiting from these new models including Capital District Physicians Health Plan, Priority Health, Goodyear Tire & Rubber, California Association of Physicians and Barbara Starfield, Johns Hopkins University.

Join us in Washington on the eve of reform as the government looks to tackle excessive spending head on and convene with other Healthplan reimbursement and benefit design professionals to prepare for change that’s coming to ensure sustainability and profitability in the years to come.
