Leading and Managing Value Based Care: Are We Up to the Task?
March 24 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
The development of skills necessary to provide better health, better healthcare and lower costs will be rewarded under evolving payment models. Early findings from the Comprehensive Primary Care and the Bundled Payment for Care Improvement Initiatives demonstrate mixed results in terms of cost reductions. Competencies in change management, clinical informatics/ health services research and quality improvement are critical in leading system redesign to achieve the triple aims. We will discuss key skills and potential clinician curriculum using 2 examples of deployed programs, the Diabetes Prevention Program and the Total Joint Replacement Bundle.
