More Information


The current challenges in transitioning to a value-based, rather than a volume-based, reimbursement model are forcing healthcare in a new direction. The value-based world is where quality and efficiency will be rewarded. Reimbursements will be impacted by quality and shared risk will be the new buzzword among providers. IT capabilities are now essential, and this transition is being driven by multiple key stakeholders: the government, payers, and consumers.

The transition to value-based healthcare does not have a set timeline, but the sooner healthcare providers chart a course to navigate these changes, the better off they will be.

Topics to be discussed include:

  1. Changing landscape of reimbursement methodology.
  2. The evolving relationship between healthcare decision makers and lab providers in a value-based world.
  3. Analysis of case studies and metrics in a value-based environment.
  4. Key insights for integrating clinical support and patient engagements into lab services.
