<p>Every day, physicians make complex decisions that directly affect the cost and quality of health care. But payment reform efforts, including 2015’s Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), are creating new incentives and promoting new models for care delivery. How will attempts to drive quality improvement and reward providers for better outcomes change our health care system?</p>
<p>Join <strong>The Commonwealth Fund</strong>, <strong><em>Healthcare: the Journal of Delivery Science and Innovation</em></strong>, and <strong>The University of Pennsylvania</strong> in exploring how leading policymakers, health system executives, and payers are crafting innovative incentive programs to support value-based models of care. The event will focus on programs at three regional health systems—<em>Advocate Healthcare</em> in Chicago, <em>Baptist Health System</em> in San Antonio, and <em>Partners HealthCare</em> in Boston—and consider how insights from behavioral economics are shaping new models of provider incentives.</p>
