Loosening the Barriers Between Payers, Providers, Patients and Consumers
Healthcare payers and providers have historically had combative relationships due to a fee-for-service incentive structure that put their business goals at odds. Now, more payers and providers are working together, driven by rising healthcare costs and the value-based payments and population-level health initiatives designed to address them. Partnerships range from data sharing to bundled packages — and in some cases, even collective efforts to save health system infrastructure. There is now an expanding array of options to work together for a common goal, including accountable care organizations, patient-centered medical homes and pay-for-performance programs. Partnerships are also linked to more demands for consumer choice and a growing Medicare population.
Among the topics this panel will cover:
Are the lines blurring on what makes a healthcare company?
How can provider C-Suite executives take advantage of opportunities to partner and collaborate with payers?
How joint ventures can extend care further into communities
Break down the barriers so providers and payers are working together for the benefit of the consumer
How collaborative models will lead to better communication, shared patient touches, efficiencies in operations, and shared accountability
