Creating Strategic Alignment for a Value-Based World

1:00pm - 2:00pm Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Galileo 904


Healthcare organizations need to time the switch from fee-for-service to value-based payments to maximize revenue while embracing care delivery that promotes optimal patient outcomes and positions the organization for future success. In this essential conversation, health IT transformation leaders Leigh Williams and Justin Barnes will offer strategic advice on building a three-year vision for your organization to weather the transition to a value-based world. Through understanding the intersection of revenue cycle and quality and how new payment and care delivery models impact your organization, you can identify your unique approach to aligning your organization for success. Best practices for fostering engagement from clinical and financial stakeholders will promote discussion for participants around how we can collaborate to create plans that acknowledge the reality of today's revenue cycle while achieving the promised improvement of patient outcomes through value-based care.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Assess the major legislative and policy factors impacting the ongoing shift from fee-for-service to a value-based care model and how these will affect reimbursement in 2018
  • Demonstrate skills to align financial and clinical stakeholders to achieve success as reimbursement methods change and organizations depend financially on patient outcomes
  • Discuss best practices for fostering engagement from both clinical and financial stakeholders on issues that intersect those two disciplines
