Yes, the Value-based Care Revolution Is Still Underway

Policies governing health care provisions appear to be changing yet again, as legislators in Washington continue to debate strategies and plans.  But the sometimes contentious discussions often overlook a key point of agreement: the cost of care must be reduced while outcomes improve, especially for frail seniors.

Despite the transition to a Republican administration, a massive shift is still underway by the federal government from traditional fee-for-service systems to alternative strategies such as bundled payments that link outcomes to payments.

“Value-based care is here to stay,” said Brian Fuller, vice president of value-based care at naviHealth, a care transitions/solutions company based in Brentwood, Tenn.

The growth of value-based payment strategies will be discussed by Fuller at the 2017 NIC Spring Investment Forum, March 22-24, Hilton San Diego Bayfront.  He will speak at a session titled, “The Value-Based Care Revolution.”

Joining Fuller on the panel is Erik Johnson, vice president, practice lead for value-base care at Optum, a health services and innovation company. The session will be moderated by Lynne S. Katzmann, founder and president, Juniper Companies, a seniors housing owner and operator.

Attendees can expect to learn:

  • How value-based care will impact seniors housing and skilled nursing
  • What regulatory changes are likely in 2017
  • How the new Trump administration will likely approach value-based care initiatives
  • Where to find possible partnership opportunities with health care providers
