Webinar Replay: FQHC Readiness for Value-Based Payments

On November 17, 2015, HMA Information Services hosted the webinar, “FQHC Readiness for Value-Based Payments: Priorities for Success.”

Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) continue to struggle with dramatic changes in the way in which healthcare is financed in a post-ACA world. The shift to value-based payments is the latest test. The question is whether FQHCs are equipped to accept value-based payments while remaining financially sustainable.

During this webinar, HMA Principal Art Jones, MD, Managing Principal Gaylee Morgan, Senior Consultant Rob Werner, and Principal Deborah Zahn outline a step-by-step readiness assessment that FQHCs can implement to measure their ability to successfully take on risk under a value-based payment model. The webinar also provides case studies of FQHCs that have successfully entered into a variety of risk-sharing arrangements, providing important lessons about how FQHCs are adapting to new funding mechanisms. Listen to the replay and:

  • Understand key trends driving the need for FQHCs to shift to value-based payments and explore new partnerships and collaborations.
  • Understand key components of population health management, including how to understand and stratify risk, implement targeted interventions, and consistently deliver and manage care.
  • Learn how FQHCs are playing an important role in accountable care organizations, with an emphasis on reducing the global cost of care while improving patient outcomes.
  • Find out how FQHCs are joining forces to create their own independent practice associations and ACOs, driven by a desire to shift from a fee-for-service model to value-based payments.
