Abstract:

In partnership with purchasers, integrated providers are inventing value-based approaches to comprehensive health care, all while maintaining the existing fee-for-service care systems. This daunting rebalancing of financial risk and incentives is expected to reshape health care and alter the approach to innovation. UW Medicine is at the frontier of these changes and their Chief Medical Officer – presenter Carlos A. Pellegrini – is one of the key architects of the new approaches.
