Transparency: Clearing the Path to Value-Based Purchasing
The conference will feature presentations, panel discussions and workshops demonstrating that transparency in healthcare delivery is the tool that will allow wider adoption of value-based purchasing strategies. We will present employers with an overview of the way the employer healthcare delivery system is currently structured often with misaligned incentives. We will openly explore our current healthcare systems’ variance in pricing, quality, and waste. We will provide employers with an understanding of the complex maze of intermediaries in the purchasing process. We will provide employers with a roadmap to use this information to improve the cost, quality and consumer experience in the design and delivery of your health investment portfolio.
