About the Webinar
Now that the dust has settled … following the Supreme Court’s landmark decision on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010, the implementation of hugely influential provisions is gaining steam.
Much of the provisions within PPACA are intended to boost quality, focus on evidence-based care and cut out unnecessary utilization.
It sounds terrific, right? But wait … what does it mean to us? For case management departments and care coordination teams, there are a variety of crucial aspects of health reform that you need to get started on now to take the lead in reform-oriented interventions, workflows and processes.
This year alone, major provisions are targeting high-touch areas for case managers and care coordinators – including hospital readmissions, accountable care, value-based purchasing and health disparities. In 2013, further provisions are targeting administrative processes among insurers, payment reform for post-acute services, and the expansion of preventive services in Medicaid, among others.
Now that the dust has settled … Join us on August 29, 2012, for an in-depth exploration of the key aspects of health reform that are impacting and will continue to impact the practice areas of case management and care coordination.
