NCHICA Value Workshop

Navigating the Transition to Value

March 16, 2016, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
Research Triangle Foundation Headquarters

The purpose of this workshop is help healthcare providers (delivery systems, hospitals, physicians, etc.) explore strategic considerations—technical, financial, and operational—of moving to a value-based system.  As providers move away from a fee-for-service system to an outcomes-based system, what changes are necessary in technology, analytics, etc.? What strategies are needed for incremental change? Where does one start on the path to transition?

This was one of the best conferences I have been to in a long time. It was local, relevant and concise, packed with good information and varied perspectives.
