The health care environment is rapidly changing and alternative payment systems are being incorporated across health care settings. The need to successfully demonstrate the effectiveness of your services is becoming more evident. Yet many organizations are struggling with how to adapt to this change. This session will lay the foundation for you and your organization to understand how to use the best available evidence and an outcomes registry to understand and optimize performance. The speakers will review current and expected activities related to payment models, utilization review, the regulatory environment, and legislative actions.
