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?
Netsmart, a health technology company, and OPEN MINDS, answered these questions in a webinar held on August 21, 2018 at 1:00pm ET. This 90-minute webinar guided 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.
Kevin Scalia, Executive Vice President Corporate Development, Netsmart and Deb Adler, Senior Associate, OPEN MINDS, discussed how social determinants of health can best inform value-based reimbursement success; how technology supports can facilitate value-based reimbursement achievement; and best practices in payer/provider value-based reimbursement collaborations. Mr. Scalia also provided two case study examples during the presentation (one related to behavioral health and the other related to intellectual and developmental disabilities), which gave attendees a better understanding of how organizations successfully implemented the strategies mentioned in the presentation.
