Webinar

BASIC INFORMATION: The Obama administration is poised to fundamentally change how we pay for health care in this country. By the end of 2016, Medicare aims to make 30 percent of payments on the basis of quality or value of care provided rather than the quantity of services. Critics often fault the existing fee-for-service system for rewarding doctors for performing more procedures, and the Department of Health and Human Services is eager to embrace alternatives.
As the largest payer in the U.S. health care system, Medicare wields a huge influence on how health care is paid for and delivered, and this move is expected to trigger larger changes that ripple through the health care system. In this webinar, we'll explore the implications of this massive shift from volume toward value. Our expert panelists will assess the mixed track record of Accountable Care Organizations, which many see as precursors to this change, and discuss other promising innovations for boosting quality while lowering costs. What do early results from these ongoing experiments say about the future of payment reform?
We'll be joined Dr. Arnold Milstein, director of the Clinical Excellence Research Center at Stanford’s School of Medicine, Austin Frakt, PhD, professor and contributor to NYT's The Upshot, and health journalist Jordan Rau of Kaiser Health News.
WHEN: March 19, from 10 to 11 a.m. PST (1 to 2 p.m. EST)
