On October 21, 2015, HMA Information Services hosted the webinar, “Risk-Ready Primary Care: The Next Wave in Practice Transformation for a Value-Based Future.”
To successfully share risk in a value-based healthcare system, primary care practices need to develop a core set of capabilities that include clinical integration, data analytics, and targeted interventions. We call this type of practice transformation Risk-Ready Primary Care, and it is the next paradigm in primary healthcare delivery and risk-based payments.
During this webinar, HMA Principals Greg Vachon, MD and Lori Weiselberg offered a framework for Risk-Ready Primary Care, with an emphasis on the infrastructure and skill-sets needed to successfully manage patient populations while taking on various degrees of financial risk. More broadly, they provided an update on the evolution of value-based payments and the importance of coupling financial models with high value, population health management. Listen to the recording and:
- Understand the risk continuum, including an assessment of the various financial models and levels of risk-sharing available to primary care providers.
- Learn what’s needed for primary care providers to successfully take on risk, including the importance of a practice transformation framework that prioritizes key functions like identifying high-impact patients, improving access, and high-yield interventions.
- Obtain case studies of successful primary care practice transformations and risk-sharing arrangements.
- Learn why Risk-Ready Primary Care is poised for growth, driven by a national focus on shifting from fee-for-service to value-based payments.
