The Importance of Race and Ethnicity in Accounting for Social Risks in Medicare Value-Based Payments
April 3, 2019, 1 to 2 p.m. EST -Medicare value-based payments are increasingly considering social risk factors such as income and other elements of socioeconomic disadvantage. However, race and ethnicity are often left out of the mix, an approach that can create significant problems for providers attempting to adequately account for financial risks when entering into value-based payment arrangements.
During this webinar, experts from HMA, the National Committee for Quality Assurance, Anka Consulting, will discuss the importance of race and ethnicity in addressing social risks. Speakers will also address how payers, providers and accountable care organizations can best mitigate these risks, ensuring that value-based payment arrangements are equitable, sustainable, and best serve patient needs.
