The American health care system is moving toward an era of personalized medicine where the appropriate course of treatment can be defined with greater precision for the individual patient. In this era of "big data," traditional statistics like readmissions capture a diminishing share of what patients mean by quality and value in health care delivery.
You are invited to join Health Affairs on Thursday, May 12, 2016, in Washington, DC, for a half-day forum for policy makers on the topic of, "Envisioning The Future Of Value Based Payment." Featuring keynote remarks by David Blumenthal, President of the Commonwealth Fund, the program will include panels on existing and developing value based payment programs for hospitals and physicians, as well as how paying for value will evolve in a future with electronic health records, big data analytics, and personalized medicine.
Health Affairs is grateful to American College of Surgeons, American Medical Association, Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, Booz Allen Hamilton, Federation of American Hospitals, Johnson & Johnson, and Premier for their generous support of the event.
