Data as a Clinical Alignment Strategy
As both commercial and government payors introduce alternative payment models, hospital administrators, supply chain leaders, payors and physicians, and other clinicians have increasing incentives to align on the best care pathways for specific patient populations.  Effective physician and clinical alignment takes more than financial incentives.  It requires access to key data and structures to engage physicians and clinicians in meaningful and collaborative decision-making.  Physician Executive Li Ern Chen, MD, and GHX’s Vice President of Healthcare Value Karen Conway return to the IDN Summit with another interactive workshop, this time exploring how to leverage strategic investments in data management and physician engagement to deliver greater value for patients and the multiple stakeholders supporting their health and healthcare.

Optimizing Your Success Through Value-based Contracting

Although 73 percent of healthcare providers rank value-based contracting with suppliers as a priority for improving return on investments, opportunities lag in the healthcare supply chain, according to a Premier Inc. survey. Value-based contracting for medical products and pharmaceuticals has the potential to provide significant value for all stakeholders, including patients, while ensuring that outcomes are measured and tracked appropriately. This session will discuss value-based contracts between suppliers and providers, addressing the challenges and opportunities we see in the future that will allow the creation of value-based contracts with stronger linkages to outcomes.
