As New York State moves closer to Value Based Payment (VBP), the New York State Department of Health has launched the VBP University through its efforts in DSRIP as a resource center on this model.
VBP University is designed to be an academic resource to raise awareness, knowledge, and expertise in the move to VBP. The goal of the VBP Bootcamps is to equip contractors and other interested parties, such as managed care organizations, providers, and community-based organizations, with the knowledge needed to implement VBP.
In order to obtain a VBP Certificate of Completion, students must complete and pass quizzes in three online "semesters" and attend a full-day VBP Bootcamp.
Because these trainings have been so popular, the Department of Health is offering an additional VBP Bootcamp opportunity in New York City on January 9, 2018, at the New York Academy of Medicine.
Registration for this event
will close January 2. Space is limited and offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
A highlight of the VBP Bootcamp is the Managed Longer Term Care (MLTC) course which is held in the afternoon. This course prepares participants from MLTC plans and long-term care providers for the transition to VBP. Topics covered include:
- Key principles of level 1 MLTC and VBP arrangements
- The top 10 things providers need to know related to MLTC in VBP
- MLTC quality measures
- MLTC contracting guidance
- Financing of the MLTC arrangement.
