Are your networks ready to scale value- based reimbursement? – Healthcare is moving rapidly to incorporate measures of value into payment models. It’s expected that more than two-thirds of payments will be based on value measurement in five years, up from just one-third today, according to a study conducted by ORC international and sponsored by McKesson Health Solutions. But what does this mean for network management? Inaccurate directories and network reporting, long enrollment and credentialing cycles, high call volume in member and provider services, all might be just a nuisance today. But if you haven’t addressed the root causes of these problems, you could be faced with magnified complexity as the market rapidly transitions to VBR. Attend this first in a series of webinars.
