The Editorial Team at Today’s Practice is pleased to announce the addition of Matthew Loper to the speaking faculty of the Today’s Practice Healthcare Financial Summit this October in Las Vegas, NV.
Risk-bearing reimbursement has started to trickle down to all provider systems. From large health systems and hospitals to small physician groups, your reimbursement now depends on the patient behaviors and outcomes that occur outside the four walls of your care settings. But you lack the resources, time, and toolkit to follow patients home and ensure compliance once they leave your care. In this interactive lecture, we will review the literature of behavioral economics and habit formation research in order to arrive at actionable insights into patient behaviors so that you can confidently assume risk from payers.
