As healthcare affordability, informed consumerism, and price transparency become mainstream issues that determine consumer loyalty to providers and payers, episodes-of-care (EOC) provide consistent parameters to allow them to be empowered decision makers. 

During this webinar, attendees will hear from a leading IDC analyst and a Change Healthcare executive about how health plans can use a standardized methodology for EOC to help improve quality and lower costs. 

Presenters will share:

  • Considerations for the development of a framework that provides ongoing quality measurement to drive continuous performance improvement.
  • Use case scenarios including both acute, chronic disease, and “other” episodes, like pregnancy.
  • Illustration of how analytics can be used to drive savings and transparency that can  translate into a market momentum.
  • Critical factors to help guide the development or advancement of alternative payment models that consider both primary care providers and specialists.
