As the industry continues to move away from fee-for-service, it’s become increasingly clear that data-sharing is a crucial component of value-based payment arrangements. But for payers, it’s a challenge to provide data to physicians in a way that actually helps them—and doesn’t add to their already-daunting administrative burden—especially as regulatory deadlines loom. To do that, organizations must find a way to extract actionable insights that doctors can leverage at the point of care.

Topics for discussion may include:

  • How to help providers get up to speed on data-sharing
  • What you need to consider as federal regs are set to kick in, particularly amid post-COVID changes
  • What a successful payer-provider team-up on interoperability really looks like.
