With the recent trend toward value-based care, it is essential that practice managers have a good understanding of the options available and how to develop a strategy for implementing value-based care models.
To provide a perspective specifically for orthopaedic practices, AAOE recently held a Hot Topic Webinar titled “What Is the ‘Value’ for You in Providing Value-Based Care?” sponsored by Brennan, Manna, & Diamond Attorneys and Counselors at Law. The webinar’s co-presenters, Daphne K. Saneholtz, Esq. and Gennifer Gibbs, Esq., offered their expert advice and insight for practices making the transition to value-based care.
Daphne K. Saneholtz, Esq. is a Partner for Brennan, Manna, & Diamond. She leads their Columbus office’s healthcare practice and regularly advises healthcare clients. She specializes in healthcare service delivery and payment systems, and she counsels clients on Medicaid reimbursement policy and coverage matters.
Gennifer Gibbs, Esq. is an Associate at Brennan, Manna, & Diamond and regularly works with physicians and physician groups to develop practice strategies, especially in the area of bundled payments. She focuses her healthcare practice in the areas of regulatory and administrative law, strategic planning, services, medical staffing issues, and bundled payment strategies.
Drawing from both of their knowledge and backgrounds, Saneholtz and Gibbs offered a complete look at value-based care. They walked attendees through the current healthcare reform environment, explained the movement from a payment for service model to a bundled payment model, and provided strategies specifically for implementing a bundled payment model.
They also took a close look at Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) sharing agreements, gainsharing, and clinical co-management arrangements. For each, they outlined the necessary guidelines to make each model successful for your practice.
The webinar provided a good foundation of information for any orthpaedic practice professional looking to know more about value-based care models and how to best put them in place. The speakers delved into the strategies necessary for success and even provided case studies of practices who have successfully utilized them.
