Envisioning an Integrated Health Care Delivery and Financing System

Workshop Date and Time:  May 25, 2021 | 2:00 pm – 5:30 pm ET

Where: Via webinar

In this workshop series, the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) will explore how to transform fee-for-service health financing approaches into integrated payment approaches designed to drive attention and incentives toward delivery models that are person-centered and holistic. The delivery models will focus on the advancement of individual, community, and population health by examining the advantages and complexities of effective and efficient financing through the lens of access, quality, coverage, and equity, as experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The discussion will look to address five objectives:

  1. Describe the deficiencies in our current health delivery and financing systems for creating health and sustaining health care delivery in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  2. Identify and describe alternative payment models demonstrating major transformations in health care delivery and financing, address those deficiencies, and summarize their characteristics and designs.
  3. Describe how integrated financing approaches can be used to redirect payment for individual services that may be unnecessary or even harmful toward payment for care of the whole person, equitable population health outcomes, improved patient and provider experience, and reduced per capita costs.
  4. Evaluate how care models using integrated financing have adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic to create whole person-population health and remain financially viable.
  5. Identify practical strategies and financing approaches that effectively reward whole person-population health.

Day 1 of the workshop series will focus on envisioning an integrated health care delivery and financing system.
