September 20, 2022
1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Umrath Lounge, Umrath Hall

Transforming Healthcare in Missouri VII

The Center for Health Economics & Policy will host the seventh event of their Transforming Healthcare in Missouri series — Implementing Accountable Care within Medicaid —on Tuesday, September 20th from 1-4:30 p.m. in the Umrath Lounge located on the Washington University Danforth Campus.

This meeting will focus on the topic of adding value-based and accountable care models to Medicaid. 

Attendees will hear Meredith Rosenthal, PhD, of Harvard University deliver a keynote presentation on Value-based payment: sizing up the progress of public and private payer reforms. Next, a panel of experts with diverse perspectives on the topic of adding value-based and accountable care models to Missouri Medicaid will be moderated by center co-Director Karen Joynt Maddox. Finally, attendees will break into small groups to discuss Missouri-specific questions and concerns on implementation of such models and will generate feasible policy solutions that could improve Medicaid participants’ health outcomes in a financially responsible manner.

About the keynote speaker

Meredith Rosenthal, PhD
C. Boyden Gray Professor of Health Economics and Policy
Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health

Meredith Rosenthal’s research focuses primarily on policies that are designed to improve the affordability and value of health care in the United States. These efforts include changes in payment incentives, benefit design, and the provision of information and behavioral “nudges” to both patients and providers. Her research has influenced the design of provider payment systems in both the public and private sectors. She has advised federal and state policymakers in healthcare payment policy and implementation. She has also testified in Congressional hearings on direct-to-consumer advertising of prescription drugs and pay-for-performance and in legislative hearings in California and Massachusetts concerning healthcare provider payment and benefit design policies.
