Preparing for Tomorrow’s Payer and Purchaser Expectations

Hospitals and health systems face evolving expectations from both healthcare payers and purchasers with the transition from a volume-based to a value-based payment model and increasing consumerism in healthcare. Increasingly, payers and purchasers will demand higher quality care at a lower cost, a greater emphasis on optimizing the enhanced patient access and experience, and risk-sharing by providers. This session will provide healthcare leaders with information on the many forces driving these changes, and practical guidance on how organizations can be proactive in preparing to meet these new demands.

After this session, participants will be able to:

 

  • Describe the forces affecting employer, consumer, and health plan expectations of providers
  • Understand principles for evaluating these forces and their influence in specific markets
  • Identify the key capabilities hospitals and health systems will need to address these forces
  • Describe strategies to prepare for new consumer-oriented expectations
