GETTYSBURG, Pa., May 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — About Tuesday, August 30, 2022from 09:0012:30 p.m., OPEN MINDS will present live,”Succeeding with Value-Based Reimbursement: A OPEN MINDS Executive Seminar on Organizational Skills and Best Management Practices for Value-Based ContractsThis executive seminar is designed to help health and human services organizations implement value-based contracting skills and tactics as healthcare transitions from traditional fee-for-service reimbursement models. to value-based models. OPEN MINDS Senior Partners, Ken Carr and Carol ClaytonPhD will provide best practice processes for evaluating and transitioning to this new model.

The move to value-based reimbursement (VBR) has upended the status quo for many specialty provider organizations. This forced management teams to implement new data-driven services, technologies and systems necessary for VBR’s success. New or redesigned services linked to quality outcomes must be created, negotiated and piloted. Technology that drives results and creates operational efficiencies needs to be identified, funded, and implemented. Additionally, a culture of using data to ensure standardized and results-driven results across the organization needs to be created. Therefore, provider organizations must move from an understanding of the key competencies required in the VBR model to tactical initiatives to implement the talent, technology, and systems that deliver quality and value.

During the seminar, management teams of provider organizations will learn:

  • The fundamental infrastructure components needed for VBR.
  • Identify how to move from VBR-related service value concepts to discussions with payers and implementation of new VBR services.
  • Implementation approaches to realign service models to ensure success in a value driven marketplace.
