The Alliance is striving for a future where all care is bought and paid for through methods that are simple, transparent, and predictable. This event will explain how employers can utilize Payment Reform strategies – one of our four core drivers of High-Value Health Care – to lower costs and improve health care safety and efficacy.

Dr. Robert A. Berenson, institute fellow at the Urban Institute – and author of nearly 100 Medicare, provider payment, and provider consolidation publications – is keynoting the event. Dr. Berenson has experience practicing medicine, served in senior positions for two presidential administrations, and helped organize and manage a successful preferred provider organization.


Achieving payment reform in health care can be done by creating the right incentives for care delivery to protect employers (and their employees) from unexpected charges and enhance the health of each patient. Learn from Dr. Berenson and The Alliance on how to address these challenges and improve health care – now and in the future – by rewarding value of care over volume of care.
