Overview: In order to support improvements in both health care delivery and payment systems, individuals and organizations that purchase health care services need a clear business case showing that the proposed change in care will achieve sufficient benefits to justify whatever change in payment health care providers may need to support the change in care. Health care providers also need a clear business case showing that they will be able to successfully deliver high-quality care in a financially sustainable way under the new payment system. In this webinar, Harold D. Miller describes a 10-step process to develop such a business case, and he shows how to apply the process to specific examples. He also describes the four major types of data that are needed to inform the business case design process.
This webinar is offered in conjunction with the recent publication of a related issue brief, which can be found on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's payment reform web page.
