HCEG Members & Sponsors Discuss Innovation in Healthcare
This Friday, March 17th, HCEG will facilitate an interactive round-table type discussion of key changes taking place with ACO and other alternative reimbursement models. A panel of industry leaders will discuss:
  1. Potential impacts of clinical and data analytics on healthcare interactions, workflow, engagement, costs and overall population health?
  2. How risk can be managed and how should it be shared over what time frame among healthcare stakeholders?
  3. What quality and access measures will best serve payers, providers and consumers?
  4. Implications of current reform initiatives on value-based relationships and changes that may impact the future of your business.
  5. How cost and quality transparency figure into and impact healthcare.
The forum is complimentary for HCEG members and takes place the last day of UnitedAg's Health Innovation Forum in Napa, CA. See here for more information.
Priorities in the Transition to Value-Based Care
7th Annual Healthcare Industry Pulse

Earlier this week, HCEG sponsor Change Healthcare and the HealthCare Executive Group announced the results of this year's 7th Annual Healthcare Industry Pulse Research.

Ferris Taylor, board chair of HCEG, shared the following in this press release:

"Our findings show 2017 will be a notable year for healthcare as organizations change how they deliver care, handle reimbursements, engage patients and navigate new policies. Though payers and providers face uncertainties, the research suggests they're collaborating better than ever. As has been the case in years past, we're confident our insight will continue to help them more proactively prepare for new hurdles and accelerate innovation as a new administration takes office, care models evolve and reimbursements shift."

Free Webinar on March 29, 2017

Change Healthcare and HCEG will be presenting full findings from the research during a webinar on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at 2:00pm ET.
