Speakers
Description

Employers, Health Plans, TPA’s and even some insurers are direct contracting with hospitals and healthcare providers and creating narrow networks and steering their plan members and employees to specific hospitals. This session will examine why employers and other healthcare buyers are tired of variability in pricing, outcomes, and experiences and have realized that not all healthcare providers are created equal. Employers and buyers are now eliminating the risk and contracting directly with hospitals and providers that provide high quality, low complication procedures at pre-negotiated (bundled pricing) and ensuring their employees get the best care, but more importantly the right diagnosis, and right care at the right price.
