This session will describe how adequate data and analyses can enable Alternative Payment Models (APM) to be designed in ways that improve the quality of care for patients and reduce or slow the growth in healthcare spending without creating inappropriate financial risk for physician practices, hospitals, and other providers.
Explain how claims and clinical data can be used to identify opportunities for improving care delivery and reducing spending in a particular patient population
Describe how to use information on service line cost structures to define Alternative Payment Models (APMs) that do not financially penalize providers for delivering fewer services
Analyze whether there is business case for both payers and providers to implement an APM
Identify ways to allocate bundled and global payments among multiple providers to support coordinated, efficient care delivery
