Impact of Increasing Consumer Cost Share on Provider Organizations: The Good, the Bad, and the Inevitable 
James C. Robinson, PhD, MPH, Leonard D. Schaeffer Professor of Health Economics and Chair, Berkeley Center for Health Technology, School of Public Health, Division of Health Policy and Management 
Employers, payers, and providers are working to improve the efficiency of our healthcare system using new methods of network contracting, pricing and payment, care coordination, and disease management. These changes can’t be made without engaging patients. As they share in the cost of their care, increased transparency will expose consumers to price differences and guide their choices in their efforts to achieve better value. In this thought-provoking presentation, Dr. Robinson will discuss how consumer cost-sharing can impact our healthcare system.

9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
Population Health in a Managing Risk Market  
David Nash, MD, MBA, Founding Dean, Jefferson School of Population Health 
Imagine a physician walking into his or her primary care practice and accessing an array of tools designed to provide the best, most cost-efficient care possible to engaged patient partners—and then receiving a premium for achieving great outcomes. Dr. Nash thinks this scenario is on the horizon thanks to payment reforms that reflect his “no outcomes, no income” mantra, the use of big data to understand socioeconomic factors of health, and information technology that will allow us to create comprehensive patient registries and to better benchmark care at the physician level. 

10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Paul Grundy, MD, MPH, Director, IBM Global Healthcare Transformation 
In the next 10 years, we will be living in a mobile world in the middle of an aging and chronic disease epidemic, but we will also have data and the ability to analyze data cognitively. Dr. Grundy will discuss emerging technology that turns data into actionable information. He will demonstrate how these technologies and the move Patient- Centered Medical Home level of care is leading to teams that deliver population health management, patent-centered prevention, care that is coordinated, comprehensive accessible 24/7, and integrated across a deliver system—and how all of that is powered by data made into meaningful information.
