Many states across the nation are in the process of designing and implementing multi-payer payment reform initiatives. The goals of these initiatives are to improve patient experience, improve the health of populations, and reduce health care costs. This webinar addresses how current payment reform models can help fix our broken health care delivery system and assist states to achieve the Triple Aim. However, along the payment transformation journey, are there potential pitfalls of payment reform models that states should look out for and avoid?
In this webinar, Alan Weil provides a framework for how alternative payment models can help transform the delivery system away from a fragmented fee-for-service system while also considering the risks of state-based payment reform models and strategies to mitigate those risks. Joseph Thompson and Robin Lunge ground this policy presentation in the realities of their payment reform models in Arkansas and Vermont. How are states addressing the potential pitfalls of payment reform and realizing effective payment and delivery system transformation to achieve the Triple Aim?
