About the Pre-Conference

With Medicare, state Medicaid agencies, managed care organizations, and commercial insurers increasingly adopting value-based payment (VBP) models, HMA’s Pre-Conference Workshop will provide an overview of a range of innovative and successful approaches to value-based care.  Key topics will include alternative payment models and value-based contracting, care coordination and clinician engagement, tools necessary for providers and payers, and behavioral health adoption of value-based care.

The workshop is designed for payers and providers interested or involved in VBP that want to: 

Obtain insights for transforming the care delivery model to efficiently deliver optimal patient and population level health outcomes, while successfully managing costs

Ensure quality is the primary goal of VBP program design and implementation

Develop payment models that align the incentives of payers and providers

Integrate physical and behavioral healthcare and social determinants of health

Successfully transition from fee-for-service to value-based payments, which requires competence in change management, analytics, network engagement, and IT infrastructure, all while simultaneously improving the patient experience

Quantify, manage, and monitor health insurance risk

Model risk tolerance, assess readiness, and understand the data needed to improve outcomes, and the steps necessary to transform their organization to succeed in value-based care


Payers, providers, regulators, and other healthcare organizations interested in VBP.



Alternative Payment Models and Value-Based Contracting:

Speakers will provide insights on determining readiness across seven key building blocks for moving to VBP, as well as discuss how to achieve continuous improvement across healthcare organizations.


Care Coordination and Clinician Engagement:

The key to successful value-based care strategies is the alignment of incentives with providers. Presenters will provide methods for identifying and closing gaps in care pathways for common chronic conditions; detail options for care management models; and discuss how to create buy-in among providers and other members of the care team.

Tools Necessary for Providers and Payers:

Speakers will discuss the types of tools and actuarial expertise needed to succeed in value-based arrangements, including key areas such as financial projections, reserves, total cost of care analysis, and benchmarking.


Behavioral Health Adoption of Value-Based Care:

As mental health providers rapidly enter into shared-risk arrangements, it is critical for a successful framework to integrate primary care into the service model. Speakers will address methods for incorporating whole-person care into clinical algorithms that apply to every interaction with the patient and their families.
