The Aftermath of COVID-19: Experts Plot the Path Forward for Payment Reform

February 25, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm Eastern

Watch the recording for the third installment of CPR’s COVID-19 Virtual Summit series: The Aftermath of COVID-19: Experts plot the path forward for payment reform.

In May of 2020, CPR launched our first exploration of COVID-19’s impact on the health care ecosystem, focusing on emerging trends in health care costs and spend, with analysis of how purchasers could adapt their procurement strategy.  Our second installment in August brought health care strategists and executives from the delivery system and commercial health insurance to the table to analyze how the health care delivery system has responded to COVID-19, and the downstream implications for patient access, care quality, and health equity.

In this third chapter, CPR is bringing together voices of private sector executives, health care economists, and leaders at the forefront of the payment reform movement, to forecast the future of alternative payment models in Medicare and the private sector, and the implications for health care purchasers.

The Virtual Summit occurred on Thursday, February 25, from 1:00 – 3:00 pm Eastern time.
