When Central Georgia Health Network was preparing to take on financial risk for the care of their patients, their physicians had limited experience with population health management. So, CGHN developed a comprehensive practice transformation program for 1000+ providers that addressed the educational needs of a network unfamiliar with value-based care. In this practical, hands-on case study, CGHN will explain how they prepared a large, diverse clinically integrated network to deal with changing payment models. Ultimately, they enabled independent physicians and hospital-employed providers to partner with hospitals to improve financial and clinical outcomes. Clinical and IT leaders from CGHN will share the detailed practice transformation strategies they built to ensure their primary care physicians would be ready to transition to new payment models. This introductory-level session is ideal for CINs and physician groups just beginning to move from fee-for-service to fee-for-value.
