The healthcare industry is undergoing tremendous and rapid transformation in order to substantially reduce healthcare spending while simultaneously improving patient outcomes and population health. Payment reimbursement models are transitioning at a furious pace from traditional fee for service payment structures to value-based models. Bundled Payments is at the forefront of payment reform and it is ushering in a new era of healthcare, further propelled by the recent CMS mandates. In addition to reducing healthcare spending costs, hospitals and health systems assume accountability for both financial and patient outcomes for the entire episode of care. Health plans are encountering challenges of how to process Bundled Payments claims and develop new infrastructures.

We have created a high-level forum featuring Providers and Payers who will share their insights and expertise on how to prepare and be successful with the new Bundled Payment models. This impressive program will include distinguished members from highly regarded hospitals, health systems and health plans featuring best innovative practices to utilize in today's rapidly evolving world of healthcare.

This is the only conference on Bundled Payments that will equip you and your organization with innovative strategies and tools to succeed in the new era of healthcare and payments. By attending the 2018 Healthcare Bundled Payments Conference in Las Vegas, NV on September 13 – 14, 2018, you will learn what highly regarded hospitals, health systems and health plans are doing to be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead in 2018 and beyond.
