What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in any facet of value-based healthcare as it relates to using technology to drive it. All skills levels are welcome. I started this group because I found no group in Chicago that focuses on this unique niche.

RSVPs will be closed at 3pm on day of event. 6 to 630pm - Networking and Food 630pm to 8pm - Presentation/Discussion Presenter: Marc Rosen Successful practice transformation requires adoption of broad population health strategies. As providers accept more risk under value-based payment models, there is greater emphasis on managing chronic disease. Evidence-based, community interventions have increasing importance to success with the new payment models. Over the last eight years, the Y has intentionally focused efforts on scaling evidence-based health interventions to bridge the clinic-to-community gap and play a central role in partnering with both health care providers and payors to achieve Quadruple Aim objectives. Marc Rosen, Director of Healthcare Integration and Translation at YMCA of the USA, will discuss the impact Community Based Organizations can have in helping health care stakeholders meet clinical quality metrics in a changing landscape and as part of a comprehensive population health strategy. In addition, Marc will highlight case studies and lessons learned from the Y’s experience implementing local strategies that support enhanced disease self-management and population health strategies.
