  • Value-Based Payments in Public and Not-for-Profit Hospitals in the Age of COVID-19 - On Demand Recording

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 06/17/2020

    Value based payments have changed the nature and types of arrangements and transactions between providers. The changes have included increases in risk-based contracting and in alignment strategies that rely on payment principles that were previously less common, such as gainsharing, capitation and subsidization. Hospitals and health systems that are tax supported, not-for-profit or otherwise serve the social safety net have special considerations when structuring and entering into new types of risk and payment arrangements. These special considerations are layered on a complex patchwork of more general laws and considerations that affect all hospitals and health systems. Our panel of experts will identify and discuss the complex and expanding scope of considerations in the context of the new hospital realities created by COVID-19.

  • Crisis or Opportunity?: Hospitals Serving Special Populations and the Legal Challenges of Integrated, Accountable, and Coordinated Care Part II: Data or Bust

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 06/04/2020 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    Access to appropriate data, technology, and analytics are pivotal to a hospital or health system achieving financial success in the era of value-based payment. Likewise, the ability to attract professional talent and offer both competitive pricing and positive patient experiences and outcomes will be key to ensuring financial viability as we enter an unprecedented age of health care transparency, accountability, and consumerism. For hospitals and health systems that serve a charitable or public mission or are otherwise part of the public health safety net, the common challenges of securing appropriate talent, technology, and patient experience may be exacerbated by the regulatory and financial realities in which they operate, including the obligations of their public or charitable mission, the related heightened compliance risks that come with serving large Medicare and/or Medicaid populations, and the potential stumbling blocks of public purchasing and financing restrictions. Our panel will provide case studies and discuss strategies and solutions for regulatory challenges related to contracting for data, technology, telemedicine, professional staff, and services.
