The McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research, in collaboration with United Hospital Fund and with the support of the Community Technical Assistance Center, presents a two-part webinar on value-based payment (VBP) models for Medicaid child health services. Co-presenters Suzanne Brundage, director of UHF's Children's Health Initiative, and Chad Shearer, director of UHF's Medicaid Institute, will draw upon their extensive knowledge and latest research to discuss opportunities and challenges in the implementation of VBP in children's services.
Value-Based Payment for Medicaid Child Health Services
Part I: Setting the Stage for VBP
September 21, 2:30-4pm
The first webinar will highlight relevant data and research, explore the impact of the social determinants of health, and review the implications of health care reform for child-serving providers.
Part II: Measuring Value in Children's Health Care
September 29, 2:30-4pm
Part two will address how to measure value when it comes to children's health care, with a focus on measure selection for reporting outcomes and how outcomes align with proposed value-based payment models. Finally, the presenters will explain key differences of value-based payment between adult and children’s services and strategies for managing multiple payment models.
Both webinars will include time for Q&A and discussion. We encourage you to send any questions in advance to [email protected].
