11:00 | Driving Value Through Episodes of Care

– US health insurers (government and commercial) are investing in changes that are driving consistent value for federal fee for service programs (Medicare) and for private health plans. That value comes from improving care in post-acute settings, reducing the intensity of those settings whenever appropriate, and reducing the overall length of stay.
