The Next Revolution in Healthcare: Why the New MSSP Revisions Matter Now More Than Ever
Now more than ever, we are entering a period of rapid change catalyzed by the power of data. On December 21, 2018, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule for the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP), strengthening the financial incentives for ACOs to drive improved outcomes. The health systems that embrace data to achieve financial success will grow while the rest will struggle to compete. Join us for a discussion on how to prepare.
The US healthcare system didn’t develop overnight, rather, it is the culmination of a series of revolutions within wealthy parts of the world. In this webinar, we will explore the high points of history that have led us to our current challenges. While care has steadily improved over time, the cost of that care has risen at a much more dramatic rate. CMS created the MSSP to help mitigate the growth of these costs while providing better care for individuals and populations. On a larger scale, the program serves to shift the healthcare industry towards fee-for-value. Despite general frustration related to legislative involvement, history has proven that regulatory changes precede attitudinal changes and the MSSP (combined with accurate, timely data) may be just the piece of legislation to help make value-based care a reality. By attending this webinar you will learn:
- How the US healthcare industry reached its current state.
- Why financial imperatives drive cultural change in our economic model.
- Ways that the MSSP can help your organization achieve financial success.
- Ideas for how to utilize data to develop better healthcare delivery systems.
