On December 9, 2015, HMA and IBM Watson Health presented a webinar, “Transforming Care: From Volume to Value.”
As the federal government, state governments, payers, and health care providers across the country move from traditional fee-for-service payment models toward value-based care models, initiatives such as Medicaid Health Homes, Medicare Accountable Care Organizations and Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) programs are dramatically changing the way health care services are delivered, managed and paid for.
During this webinar, experts discussed the principles and goals of value-based care that underpin state and national reform efforts, the role that information technology (IT) will play in support of these goals, and examples of how IT has enabled provider and payer organizations to pursue value-based care initiatives.
