These programs are not merely tinkering with the edges of our health care system; they represent fundamental changes.

Now, and in the months ahead, your proactive and reactive work activities require an entirely new business plan, operational systems restructuring, different contract models, workforce and clinical practice reorientation, and, above all, a whole new outlook on the way you partner with other organizations.

These changes are happening swiftly. No doubt you could use a lot more answers on all of these development areas.

On May 28, just nine days away, HCA is holding a one-of-a-kind conference to help you prepare for change, asking of you the question: Are You Ready to Navigate New Models of Care and Coverage?  Continue reading “Time is Running Out: Register Now for HCA’s May 28 Conference on DSRIP, VBP and other New Models”

NEW: May 28 HCA Program Will Help you Navigate New Models of Care & Strengthen Your Business Model to Compete

DSRIP, FIDA, VBP … the alphabet soup is getting thick, and HCA members have asked for help navigating these and other new acronym-heavy payment models that are now with us and on the near horizon.

These new models will affect you; it’s only a matter of when, as the state juggles multiple waiver and Medicaid pilot initiatives with the federal government in an effort to construct incentive programs.

To help you, HCA will hold a daylong program in Albany on May 28 entitled Are You Ready to Navigate New Models of Care and Coverage? Registration is now open here.

This program is geared for home health provider and health plan CEOs, CFOs, COOs and those who need to gain a better understanding of emerging care models to position your organization successfully in a service and payment delivery environment of new models of care.

With the enactment of far-reaching health care reforms at the federal and state levels, changes to the health care delivery and payment systems are evolving quickly. It is important for home care providers to get up to speed on all of these fast-moving developments.

Speakers at this program will include top state health care program officials, expert consultants and more, including: State Medicaid Director Jason Helgerson; Value Based Payment expert Dr. Marc Berg of KPMG; Greg Allen, Director of the Division of Program Development and Management within the New York State Office of Health Insurance Programs (OHIP); Tracy E. Miller, a health law expert at Bond Schoeneck and King; and others.

In addition to providing insights on these new models, how the incentives work, and their structure, this program will also focus on how to strengthen your business model to remain competitive.
