Post-Acute Care: Preferred Provider Networks Offering Value-Based Care

Does your strategic growth plan position your agency as a partner in preferred provider networks?  Does your agency have the knowledge and capabilities to offer “value-based care”?  An aging population, shifting reimbursement models, increases in chronic disease states, and new care delivery models that extend beyond hospitals to post-acute-care providers are demanding the implementation of preferred provider networks.  Simultaneously, value-based care and new payment models incentivize both acute- and post-acute-care providers to focus on greater coordination of care that emphasizes quality, cost effectiveness, and patient experience.  This webinar will explain the benefits and requirements of value-based care providers.  Learn the steps, data requirements, and other considerations to become and remain a preferred provider in a network that offers value-based care.  One- and two-sided risk payment models and how to prepare your agency for participation in alternative payment models will also be addressed. 



  • Define “coordination of care” across provider networks
  • Alternate payment models and their effectiveness on “pain points”
  • Critical data points for cross-functional quality measures necessary for value-based care
  • Hospice/home health quality reporting patient assessment initiatives
  • Data sets, outcome measures, the patient experience, and how to effectively identify partnership opportunities
  • Trends in value-based care and reimbursement, including the leading business line that is adopting and implementing these trends
  • How palliative care supports a value-based care payment system
