The shift from fee-for-service and requirements of the Affordable Care Act (i.e. Obamacare) have positioned "value purchasing" as the new healthcare delivery model. Our conference will seek to find clarity in a rapidly changing and uncertain sector. The stakes are high. There will be winners and losers. Key players are now determining whether to lead, follow or wait.
Providers, Payers, Brokers, Employers and other key players have to navigate these questions. Some are placing big bets, some are focused on cost and quality, some are focused on new risk assumption models, and others are just trying to hold on.
