Medicare Advantage and Risk: Delivering on the Promise of Value

Making the shift from fee-for-service to value-based care is perhaps the most transformative change a healthcare organization will ever make. It impacts every aspect of operations: governance, technology, human resources, compensation, care processes, and beyond. And with escalating costs and patient health on the line, it’s essential to get it right.

This year’s Institute for Quality Leadership (IQL18) focuses on strategies for succeeding in risk-based payment models, including Medicare Advantage. Wherever you are on the risk continuum, IQL18 delivers the resources and relationships for managing risk.



Meeting participants will depart San Antonio with methodologies and tactics to address:

  • Risk-based contracting
  • Payer contracting alignment
  • Change management and transformation
  • Physician burnout
  • Clinical and quality improvement
  • And more
