episode programs are
rewarding patients and
high-performing providers


Get insights from Eastern Connecticut Health Network

Commercial health plans and self-insured employers have attempted a variety of value-based care arrangements, all intended to lower the cost of care and create healthier plan members and employees. But many of these arrangements have failed to produce desired outcomes – instead placing unnecessary operational and financial burden on the providers delivering care.

Not all value-based care arrangements are created equal. In this summary of a Modern Healthcare webinar featuring Eastern Connecticut Health Network, learn why commercial health plans and employers are pursuing episode-based arrangements with providers, and how this high-performance provider network is foreseeing positive outcomes for patients and their business.

Key takeaways include:

  • How commercial episodes of care and bundled payment arrangements are structured for optimal performance
  • The value that episodes of care programs offer to payers, providers, and patients
  • Why Eastern Connecticut Health Network is participating in an employer-sponsored episode-based program
  • The connections between quality, financial performance, adoption of episode care methodology, and responsibilities in accepting risk
  • Factors that providers, commercial health plans, and self-insured employers should consider when launching episodes of care programs
