Eliminating Low Value Healthcare (a.k.a. Waste)
One in every six dollars flowing through the American economy is going to healthcare, and more than 30 percent of those dollars are wasted on low-value care or administrative waste. Current payment systems provide perverse incentives that reward this waste and do not reward high value care. If we are to achieve better and more affordable healthcare we must reduce this waste, which requires better data, strong multi-stakeholder collaboration, and changes in how we pay providers.
Please join us as we start the conversation on eliminating waste, and making the health care system more efficient and affordable.
Guest speakers include:
Elizabeth Mitchell, President and CEO of NRHI, will facilitate a robust discussion and provide a national perspective.
Joshua Rosenthal, Chief Scientific Officer, RowdMap, will address how the healthcare system can improve incentives and reduce waste.
NRHI Member TBD, will provide an expert take on how a particular region/stakeholder group is facing this waste issue.
Following the presentations there will be a moderated Q&A that incorporates attendee questions and comments.
Unless otherwise noted, all virtual NRHI events are hosted in Eastern Standard time.
