Registration Open for 2017 LAN Summit

The Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network (LAN) is hosting their 2017 Fall Summit, Aligning for Action, on Monday, October 30 in Arlington, VA. Topics scheduled to be addressed at the meeting include:

  • Advancing the adoption of value-based payment models in maternity care
  • Accelerating assessment of person-centered care delivery and outcomes via patient reported outcome measures
  • Spotlight on integrated finance and delivery payment models
  • Succeeding with APMS: structuring relationships between payers and providers

Registration information is available here.

The Department of Health and Human Services launched LAN, a forum of public and private stakeholders, to help advance the work being done across sectors to increase the adoption of value-based payments and alternative payment models. LAN is working to align private payers and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in moving payment from traditional fee-for-service (FFS) methods to FFS-linked to quality and APMs.

More information about LAN is available on their website.

More information about the Quality Payment Program is available here.
