This webinar will be presented by Ellen Kuebrich, Senior Director, Quality Solutions with HealthStream®.
The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated healthcare providers operating under the fee-for-service model; the American Hospital Association estimates that from March 1 to June 30, 2020, America’s hospitals and post-acute providers lost $202.6 billion. Meanwhile, organizations relying on managed care models have held finances steady.
While this is unlikely to change how providers are paid, COVID-19 has acted as a catalyst in healthcare, and initiatives like bundled payments and value-based purchasing programs that prioritize coordinated care and quality outcomes are gaining support. All this necessitates hospitals rigorously re-evaluating their preferred post-acute partners. In this session, you’ll learn how we got here, the current state of your acute care partners, and what you can do to either defend or acquire your preferred network position.
Your learning objectives include:
- Understanding how COVID-19 has exposed the fragility of the fee-for-service system.
- Learning how to take advantage of a disrupted market to defend or acquire their place in hospital referral networks.
- Gaining clarity on what acute-care organizations are looking for from a preferred post-acute partner.
