Save the Date – Preparing for and Delivering Value-Based Care in Rural Communities

Funding for the Northern Border Region Technical Assistance Center is provided by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and in coordination with the Northern Border Region Commission (NBRC)*

The Northern Border Region Technical Assistance Center (NBR-TAC) is pleased to present a four-part webinar series on the journey to Value-Based Care (VBC) for rural hospitals and primary care providers/facilities (FQHC’s/RHC’s) interested in learning more about operating in a value-based care environment. This webinar is open to organizations or individuals interested in this topic who are welcome to attend.

The webinar series will feature four (4) one-hour sessions from experts in rural health care, supporting the transition from a fee-for-service environment to a value-based approach to healthcare for the entire community. Session 1 will provide an in-depth overview of the required competencies necessary for achieving success in a value-based environment, followed by lessons learned from a global budget demonstration program – PA Rural Health Model. Session 3 will be a panel discussion on the rural experience from Accountable Care Organizations (ACO’s) in Maine, New York, and Vermont. The series will conclude with a checklist approach to “next steps” for delivering healthcare within a value-based framework.
