Employer Direct Contracting & Bundled Payments Summit
THE FUTURE OF SELF-FUNDED HEALTH PLANS MAINTAINING AFFORDABLE COST WILL BE THROUGH DIRECT CONTRACTING Join this exclusive educational and networking event to learn the “How to.”
By the end of 2018 over 60% of employers in the US will have some form of direct contract with healthcare providers, whether it’s a Center of Excellence, narrow network, or a high performing network. More employers globally are adopting self funded healthcare plans and viewing direct contracting with hospitals as a solution to lower costs and improve quality and outcomes. It doesn’t matter whether you are in the US, the Americas or anywhere in the world, Direct Contracting is a global model that is being adopted.
Why are Employers contracting directly with hospitals? Because they are tired of:
Wasting money on unnecessary medical procedures and wrong diagnosis
Employees/plan members choosing hospitals/surgeons with poor outcomes or complications because of a lack of education, knowledge or steerage
