Venue: Morton’s Steakhouse


Managing the transition from volume-based to value-based care is a risky endeavor that is putting the performance of both hospital clinicians and business leaders to the test.  Today’s revenue forecast calls for a combination of both reimbursement models, with some revenue coming through fee-for-service arrangements, but with quality-based-based payment driving returns. This poses an enormous challenge for healthcare leaders who must walk this financial tightrope, both balancing payment transition and managing toward population health where treatment outcomes are applied globally.
