The Building Blocks of Value: A Framework for Prevailing Value-Based Enterprises – Transformational change in healthcare is no longer a purely theoretical notion or distant possibility. We are in the midst of it, and participation is not optional. Fundamental shifts in reimbursement models and incentive structures are ushering in the era of value. In migrating to a value-centric healthcare system, “business as usual” will quickly lead to no business at all. Even as an air of uncertainty hovers over healthcare, prevailing systems and providers will proactively design strategies and cultivate key competencies with the expressed intention of evolving into value-based enterprises. This Webinar presents and defines the five foundational competencies of the successful value-based enterprise.

Join this session for a review of the current community-developed Mass HIway consent approach and resources, and hear from select Mass HIway Participants on how they are addressing the “opt-in” requirement. Guest speakers will share different approaches and how they navigated the myriad of technical, policy and procedural challenges they encountered.
