Transforming Healthcare through Care Delivery Innovation

Year after year healthcare costs continue to rise at an unsustainable rate.  While many have tried methods to rein in costs, none have been as effective as the most recent efforts in care delivery innovation.  Look at accountable care organizations (ACOs) and payment innovation as reductions in unit costs alone will not deliver the results needed to make healthcare affordable. Discussions will include trends in the cost of healthcare with cost reduction as well as quality improvements.

At the completion of this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand why the current system is unsustainable
  • Understand how ACOs work
  • Understand how some ACOs impact trends
