VBP FORWARD OVERVIEW

VBP Forward is a conference dedicated to the next generation of value based payment. As healthcare payment shifts to value, there are growing complexities to healthcare delivery and sustainability. This is most pronounced for high need and high cost patients. VBP Forward is dedicated to service delivery institutions outside acute care offering immense value to patient outcomes. The conference is geared towards organizations that service Medicaid and Medicare special needs or complex populations or have interest in that value chain. This inaugural event held in Buffalo, NY – with Jason Helgerson as the keynote speaker – will provide a roadmap for those organizations in their path towards effective VBP for special needs populations.

GOAL

The goal of the conference will be to provide both mature and nascent VBP organizations a roadmap for how to identify need, develop value, contract on risk, and implement population health solutions.
