More payers are shifting a larger percentage of their payments to providers based on the value of the services provided. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has set a goal of making 30% of traditional, or fee-for-service, Medicare payments tied to quality or value through alternative payment models, such as Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) or bundled payment arrangements, by the end of 2016; increasing to 50% by the end of 2018. With such rapid changes in a relatively short period of time, you need a source where you can hear and see how orthopedic industry leaders are preparing for and executing change in this new environment.
