How employer-sponsored episode programs are rewarding patients and high-performing providers

Original Air Date: June 24, 2021

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.

However, not all value-based care arrangements are created equal. In this webinar hosted by Modern Healthcare, learn why commercial health plans and employers are pursuing episode-based arrangements with providers, and how one high-performance provider network is foreseeing positive outcomes for patients and their business.

Viewers can expect to learn:

  • 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 one high-performance, Connecticut-based CIN 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
