Employers across the country are buying healthcare in new ways to improve access, quality and affordability. Working through their health plans or contracting directly, they are demanding evidence-based care, price transparency, and accountability from healthcare providers, plans, PBMs and vendors.
At our September 5th Luncheon Program, Suzanne Delbanco, executive director of Catalyst for Payment Reform, will share how employers are pushing for reforms in how we pay for healthcare and how providers deliver care. Powerful purchasing strategies in play include innovative benefit designs to steer employees toward higher value care, carefully curated provider networks, reference-based pricing and bundled payment models, and a plethora of useful price and quality transparency tools. Suzanne also will discuss the challenges and impact of a consolidating provider market power, which could either stimulate or stymie widespread adoption of employers’ forward looking reform strategies.
Don’t miss this exceptional opportunity to experience catalytic thinking by a leading expert in payment reform.
