Population Health Management Webinar: How to Effectively Negotiate Value-Based Contracts in the New Retail Market

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - April 21, 2015) - Becker's Hospital Review and BDC Advisors are hosting an upcoming webinar on population health management and value-based contracts.

Providers that decide to move upstream to capture a greater share of premium revenue by participating in value-based contracts must learn how to execute effective risk sharing health plan partnerships that are market and segment specific.

These partnerships -- which will be targeted at specific geographic areas and market segments -- can provide access to key infrastructure, including informatics, care management, marketing and retail sales. They can also leverage the partner's brand or distribution systems.

Unless these partnerships are able to grow market share and covered lives, however, these new alliances may not be a sustainable business model. The key to meeting these challenges lies in understanding the values arrangement, its differences as well as assessing and evaluating the feasibility to assume risk under a value-based arrangement.

To learn more about the goals of effective value-based contracting, how to incorporate safeguards to mitigate contract risk and the pros and cons of various arrangement types, sign up for a webinar hosted by Becker's Hospital Review and BDC Advisors on May 19 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. CST.
