How to Build Direct-to-Employer Programs That Work

An independent HealthLeaders Media report supported by

As healthcare costs pose an ever-greater burden on employers, they are growing frustrated with payers’ inability or unwillingness to create value and improve quality. As a result, employers increasingly seek to engage in direct relationships with the providers of care.

 Such relationships can involve bundled payment programs for episodes of care, centers of excellence programs and narrow network tactics that can align private and employed physicians, hospitals and health systems, and employers.

In this HealthLeaders Roundtable, healthcare leaders share strategies as well as real-world experience in setting up direct-to-employer relationships that establish resource needs, align analytics, establish pricing and set realistic quality and volume targets to make such programs sustainable and successful.
