The Future of Payment Models: An Exploration of Best Practices
Moderator: Donald W. Fisher, PhD, President and Chief Executive Officer, American
Medical Group Association
Panelists: Benton Davis, Senior Vice President, Clinical Communities & Networks, Optum;
Charles D. Kennedy, MD, Chief Population Health Officer, Healthagen; Tim O’Rourke, Vice
President of Provider Development, Humana; and Richard Salmon, MD, PhD, National
Medical Director, Performance Measurement and Improvement, Cigna
Our healthcare system is experiencing some of the most significant and far-reaching
changes in its history, especially with the proliferation of new reimbursement models.
Overall the impetus for these changes is a positive motivator, creating a mandate for
accountability and quality to focus on value for patients. However, while positive,
these changes will require medical groups and health systems to redesign their
operations and processes to prepare for a value-based model of reimbursement. In this
interactive panel discussion, we will examine the payer perspective on different models
of payment that are driving this change—including commercial ACOs, Medicare
Advantage plans, and other value-based payment models—in order to give you the
information necessary to position your organization for success.
Upon completion of this
activity, participants should be able to describe different models of payment—including
commercial ACOs, Medicare Advantage plans, and value-based payment programs—and
related operational changes that will affect medical groups.

Why Employers Need Healthcare Reform to Succeed
Gary Loveman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Caesars
Healthcare costs remain the number one cost pressure
on U.S. businesses, making it increasingly difficult to
provide affordable care to their employees. With the
implementation of the Aff ordable Care Act pushing more
financial responsibility onto consumers, patients will need
to become even more engaged in their healthcare decisions
and employers and providers will have to become more involved in helping them
make these decisions. In this presentation, Gary Loveman will share how the eff ective
collection and use of data can help drive consumer behavior. Additionally, he will draw
on his experiences serving on the Health and Retirement Committee of the Business
Roundtable, an association of chief executive officers whose members lead U.S.
companies with $7.4 trillion in annual revenues and more than 16 million employees,
to discuss how the healthcare system should be fixed to benefit the patients and the
employers for whom they work, with improved quality and cost savings being the
end goal for all.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to describe
how the effective collection and use of data can help drive consumer behavior, and what
employers and payers are looking for in the healthcare system.

The Art of Leadership
Erik Wahl, Artist and Author of Unthink: Rediscover Your Creative Genius
As the healthcare landscape continues to evolve, leaders need to stay ahead of the curve by fostering a steady stream of disruptive strategies creating unexpected solutions.
However, disruptive thinking requires a culture of innovative leadership, one that can provide the framework and motivation to generate those strategies and execute those
solutions. To thrive in this new era, healthcare leaders need to rethink the habits that have made them successful in the past and challenge the conventional wisdom and
industry models that have defi ned their world for so long. Through this inspiring and thought-provoking performance, Erik Wahl will challenge the conventional, and make
you wonder, “Why haven’t we ever thought about our business and culture this way before?”
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to describe how to
develop a culture of innovative leadership.
