The goal of this course is to prepare you for the challenges and organization transformation required in a value-based payment world.   Managers will need not only an understanding of the total patient view, care integration and population risk management techniques required to meet new reimbursement requirements, but the change management issues and the IT/data management infrastructure and reporting environment required for success.  This course outlines the issues and challenges from all stakeholder perspectives: payors and plan sponsors, healthcare system managers, clinicians, IT department, patients and communities.  Key success criteria for disease and care management explored in models such as Accountable Care Organization (ACO) and Patient Centered Medical Homes (PCMH).
