About the Webconference

Many providers are currently entering into shared savings contracts with commercial payers. But even with bonus potential, in the near term revenue rarely reaches the level accrued under fee-for-service due to the demand destruction required to meet cost targets. 

As such, some finance executives want to move quickly into capitated contracts. But providers need to gain experience with agreements that contain less risk and gradually acquire the competencies (population health management and actuarial expertise) necessary to accept full risk for a population of patients. 

This webconference examines two common financial missteps providers make in shared savings contracting, as well as strategies for avoiding each to ensure sustainable risk-based contracts.

You will learn:

  • Methods for working with payers to ensure data exchange
  • Ways to avoid redundant care management efforts
  • How to avoid imprecise patient attribution
