How can providers and payers jointly develop value-based reimbursement (VBR) initiatives that are truly a win-win? Collaboration occurs when two or more work together for a common purpose. How often is that really true in a VBR world? Payers, are you limiting your focus to easy-to-access claims-based measures? Are you including the added value of social determinants of health that can improve the selection of interventions that can result in real improvements? Providers, are you tired of the experience being thrust upon you in the name of payment reform but little true rewards for your consumers and your bottom line?

This 90-minute webinar will guide both payers and providers in how to achieve the Triple Aim and overcome some of the common barriers in earning the anticipated rewards through a successful value-based program. Understand how social determinants of health can help pinpoint interventions that will “move the needle” on consumer outcome improvement. Learn how technology supports can extend your program outside of the traditional tools and result in a win-win-win for payers, providers and consumers.


During this 90-minute executive web briefing, attendees will gain an understanding of:

  • How social determinants of health can best inform value-based reimbursement success
  • How technology supports can facilitate value-based reimbursement achievement
  • Lessons learned and best practices in payer/provider value-based reimbursement collaborations, including how to overcome some of the common barriers to success in achieving the intended payer, provider and consumer rewards
  • Two relevant case study examples (one Intellectual & Development Disabilities and one Behavioral Health) that illustrate “best practice” provider/payer collaboration
