Stewarding practical health system transformation toward value and population health

Workshop Date and Time: July 7, 2021 | 1:00 PM to 4:15 PM ET

Where: Via webinar

In this webinar, the National Academy of Medicine’s (NAM) Value Incentives & Systems Action Collaborative will explore the translation of strategic insights from NAM and NASEM initiatives to actionable approaches that accelerate movement toward integrated payment structures and away from fee-for-service payment structures, in a manner that incentivizes the alignment of resources for value and population health.

The event will seek to address two key components for action:

  1. Leverage key lessons for accelerated transformation by reviewing the landscape of challenges and opportunities for health system transformation that best aligns resources for health.
  2. Identify pathways to action by discussing practical strategies and stewardship efforts that can address systemic and organizational barriers and ensure that resources are aligned in the most efficient and effective manner to provide the best health outcomes at lower costs.

Discussions during and after this event will inform approaches and strategies for accelerating the move toward value and population health, build insight on actionable steps forward, and illuminate opportunities for continued stewardship and collaborative action.
