Steven Schutzer, M.D., president of the Connecticut Joint Replacement Institute, and Carol Harnett, president of The Council for Disability Awareness, discuss value-based healthcare -- a healthcare delivery model in which providers, including hospitals and physicians, are paid based on patient health outcomes. Under value-based care agreements, providers are rewarded for helping patients improve their health, reduce the effects and incidence of chronic disease, and live healthier lives in an evidence-based way.
The discussion covers a wide variety topics with a focus on helping employers understand the positive impact VBHC can have on employee health and productivity and health plan performance.
Topics discussed include centers of excellence, why this movement is important and relevant to the entire population, challenges and obstacles in using a VBHC approach and how to overcome them, and how employers can meaure results.
Employers interested in learning more information about value-based healthcare can attend the Moving to Value Forum: Employers Disrupting the Healthcare System in Hartford, CT on December 6 and 7, 2018.
