Volume to Value


The current state of healthcare in the United States is a wake-up call for those in the industry to innovate healthcare delivery methods in an effort to improve care quality and reduce escalating costs. Although healthcare providers and leaders face pressure under an already stretched system, the future is promising, if you know where to look.

Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), the government offers incentives for improving quality of care through the use of integrated healthcare delivery via Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). However, for hospitals and systems who do not belong to an ACO, a range of alternate healthcare delivery models have emerged.

The Risk Authority, in partnership with Aon Risk Solutions and Medical Protective Company, has brought together a panel of leading industry experts for this exciting webcast. The goal of this webcast is to help healthcare professionals discover upside opportunities within these emerging delivery systems through increased risk sharing.

Topics will include:

  • The current state, including trends in Accountable Care Organizations, mergers and acquisitions, and the value of increased risk sharing in alternative delivery models

  • How public reporting of clinical outcomes is impacting the healthcare delivery system

  • Identification of areas of upside opportunity

  • Strategies and solutions for engaging senior leadership

We invite you to register for this exclusive opportunity to learn from some of the most respected names in the field of healthcare as they examine our industry and point tomorrow’s leaders in the right direction.
