Portico Systems Webinar: Fulfilling the Affordable Care Promise


Share on LinkedIn

Portico Systems, the leader in Integrated Provider Management (IPM) solutions for payers, today announced a complimentary webinar to discuss how payers can fulfill the promise of delivering high quality, affordable care. Fulfilling this promise requires alignment between the benefit design, structure of care delivery teams/networks and the performance of care providers.

The alignment of these three processes enables payers to transition from a pure fee-for-service reimbursement model, which rewards the volume of services, to hybrid reimbursement models which reward providers for high quality outcomes. This transformation of the payer and provider relationship will enable the healthcare market to move from meaningful use to meaningful outcomes.

Attendees will learn:

• How to design networks and care teams to support innovative benefit designs
• How to mix and match reimbursement methodologies to impact provider performance
• How to reduce reimbursement administration costs by 20 to 35 percent through integration

What: “Fulfilling the Affordable Care Promise” webinar

Who: Murali Karamchedu, vice president, healthcare strategy
Vik Anantha, vice president, contracting and reimbursement product line

When: Wednesday, April 6, 2011; 1:00 p.m. Eastern time (10:00 a.m. Pacific time)
