The previously recorded webinar and associated materials are available in the resource library.

Transitioning to payment models that support value-based care means doing business differently. Many District healthcare providers are requesting assistance preparing for and implementing this important change.

Join us for a virtual learning collaborative focused on legal agreements, contracting, and financial topics, including revenue cycle management and assessing risk. Presenters will share scenarios, assessments, and tools to advance capacity and understanding.

  • Intended audience: CEOs, COOs, CFOs, clinical directors, billing, coding and reimbursement staff.
  • Offering CMEs and CEs for participating providers.

Two tracks will be offered with one track focused on finance and the other track focused on legal/contracting topics.

The session materials and recordings will be posted on the Medicaid Business Transformation page the day after the event.
