On November 13, HMA’s Albany and New York City offices hosted their first regional provider conference, “Make Your New Risk Model Pay: How New York Healthcare Providers are Making Population Health Sustainable.” Roughly 120 people attended the event.
HMA works with a wide range of New York healthcare providers, many of which have spent considerable time, energy, and funds evolving into risk-ready entities. The question now is whether these risk models can be sustained without additional incentives from the state. The conference featured a series of interactive workshops aimed at helping hospitals, ACOs, Performing Provider Systems, community-based organizations, and other provider groups develop risk models that pay.
The event kicked off with the keynote session, So, You Are Risk-Ready, Now What? Provider Strategies and Lessons for Success, and featured speaker Alan Channing, Principal, Channing Consulting Group, LLC; Retired President, CEO, Sinai Health System; Former CEO, New York Downtown Hospital. The second session’s focus was Making Care Management Models Pay. In the afternoon, conference-goers were able to attend their choice of concurrent workshops focused on making behavioral health integration models, social determinants of health models, ACO models or substance use disorder treatment models pay. HMA colleagues served as session moderators, and in some instances, as speakers.
