Transforming Care Through Global Budgets
Time & Location
About the event
Policymakers and health care payers are implementing alternative payment models to control the growth of health care spending and to encourage providers to deliver high-value care. One groundbreaking approach is the Pennsylvania Rural Health Model, a pilot program in partnership with the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and the Rural Health Redesign Center Authority. Through continued expansion, the program helps rural hospitals become more financially viable organizations while focusing on the best ways to keep their populations healthy. Under this model, global budget payments are established for a fixed period of time to reimburse providers for delivering care that aligns with community health needs. Click here for more information.
