Share Payment Reform: Changing How We Pay for Health Care

Event Details

Despite a modest 3.9% rise in 2011, the United States continues to spend more on health care than any other industrialized nation. Many analysts believe a major reason health care spending is so much higher in the US is due to how care is paid for – in ways that reward the quantity of services over quality.

The California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF) announces a Sacramento briefing designed for legislative and executive branch staff and others interested in how we pay for care, as well as new payment models with the potential to deliver better value, such as accountable care organizations (ACOs). A second event on price transparency -- how much we pay -- is scheduled for Friday, October 25.

Suzanne Delbanco and Andréa Caballero, from Catalyst for Payment Reform, will present a scorecard on California payment reform efforts and progress toward value-oriented payment. Joy Grossman, from the Center for Studying Health System Change (HSC), will discuss ACO development in California by region. 

The presenters are:

  • Andréa Caballero, program director, Catalyst for Payment Reform
  • Suzanne Delbanco, executive director, Catalyst for Payment Reform
  • Joy Grossman, senior health researcher, HSC
  • Maribeth Shannon, director of the Market and Policy Monitor program, CHCF

If you cannot attend this briefing, it will be videotaped and available on the CHCF website a few days after the event.

Lunch will be served for those who attend in person.
