Pathways to Payment Innovation in a Post-Health Reform Era
June 18, 2010
This May 10, 2010, Alliance for Health Reform/Commonwealth Fund briefing examined ways in which the new health reform law encourages innovation in the way health care is paid for. It featured presentations by Stuart Guterman, The Commonwealth Fund's assistant vice president for Payment System Reform; and Nick Wolter, CEO of the Billings Clinic in Montana. Gail Wilensky, a senior fellow at Project HOPE and former chairman of Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC); Mark Miller, executive director of MedPAC; and Ed Howard of the Alliance provided commentary. A detailed timeline of health reform implementation dates constructed by The Commonwealth Fund helped set the context.
