April's Topic | Paying for Value for Healthier and More Productive Washingtonians presented by Kristin Villas of Washington State Health Care Authority

 

What if instead of health services, we paid for healthier people? Health Care Authority (HCA), the state agency that purchases health care for over 374,000 Washington state employees and their families will share their initiatives to tie health care payments to cost, quality, and patient experience. Since 2016, HCA has directly contracted with two provider networks to reward providers where reimbursement is based on performance across financial guarantees and clinical measures. HCA will share their results to date and offer strategies how employers of all sizes can “pay for value” in health care. Upon attending the event, you can receive 1.5 HRCI credit hours that can be used towards PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification. A Certificate of Completion will be handed out after the event.
