Infrastructures for Independent Accountable Physicians
Can independent physicians remain independent in this changing healthcare environment? Donald Crane and Dr. Walt Ettinger discuss collaborative care management, the choices that independent physicians are facing, and how shared infrastructures can support changes in behavior.“The model we’ve chosen is to work with independent physicians. To try to provide the resources that we’re building around care management and other things — bring those to the physicians and engage them in that way.” ”
Technology is important, but it’s not the only component. Check out best practices for transitioning to a population health model.

Challenges and Opportunities in Healthcare Data
Healthcare is teeming with data. But the way it’s currently organized neither improves collaboration in the delivery of care, nor allows for the efficient sharing of data. Our panelists discuss recent changes in healthcare data collection, the challenges of managing data, what kind of data is missing, and how data could be better used to improve the healthcare industry.“Even at this point today, there’s not a single database that contains all of the Medicaid claims information, fifty years after the Medicaid system was created.”

Providing Meaningful Incentives for Physicians as the Model Changes
Physician engagement is key to the success of a population health model. But what kind of compensation and incentives will be meaningful to them in the midst of change, and effective over the long term? The panel discusses behavioral economics, payer/provider partnerships, and the role of enabling technology.“The destination is moving away from productivity incentives to a roster of incentives that match the ways that the group itself is incentivized.”
