States around the country are seeking new approaches to achieving payment and delivery system reform, recognizing that the most powerful approaches will include multiple payers working together and will include new models of care delivery that better integrate providers and services and increase their accountability for defined populations. This webinar will examine how states can promote multi-payer payment and delivery reform initiatives to improve care delivery, as well as strategies for working with the private sector to foster more integrated delivery systems.
This webinar is part of a NASHP series supported by the Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit to help states that are ready to take the next step in thinking about multi-payer approaches to payment and delivery reform, moving beyond the medical home. The series will focus on steps states can take and policy levers that are available to foster more integrated delivery systems. We encourage all states to participate, and to invite their key private stakeholders to join the discussion as well. States that applied for a CMS Innovation Center State Innovation Models (SIM) grant should be ripe for the discussion, and we especially encourage SIMs teams to register.
Following the webinar, selected participating states will be invited to participate in a smaller virtual consultation with our featured faculty and project staff around the issues raised in this webinar. This consultation will allow a deeper and more extended conversation for 6-8 states that are ready to take the next steps in pursuing multi-sector payment reform and fostering delivery system integration. States selected to participate will be asked to submit specific questions and discussion topics in advance to help structure the consultation.
Future webinars in this series will focus on a technical issue related to multi-payer payment and delivery reform. Each will be followed by a virtual consultation with webinar faculty for a small group of states.
