Description: Many of the associations comprising the Healthcare Collaborative come from the provider space, and many of their members may be faced with the challenge of adapting their practices in order to succeed under value-based payment models.  Although the transition to value-based payment is broadly supported, stakeholders are still working out critical details such as how to measure value and how to transfer risk from payers to providers.  Network with other association executives who are working through these changes and learn from a panel of experts who will help you understand the underlying risks and opportunities in this time of transformation.
