About the Event

The two-day Immersion Program in Value-Based Health Care is held throughout the year, and it brings together like-minded clinicians, payers/purchasers, digital health companies and others who are interested in health transformation related to musculoskeletal care. Engage with leaders from the Musculoskeletal Institute — affiliated with Dell Med’s Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care — during sessions showcasing how to put value-based care models into practice.

The curriculum includes an introduction to the process of developing integrated practice units (IPUs), an exercise and presentation on alternative payment models for IPUs, an interactive discussion on patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) and a huddle by the multidisciplinary, lower-extremity IPU.

Additional presentations from Elizabeth Teisberg, Ph.D., and Scott Wallace, J.D., MBA, of the Value Institute for Health and Care highlight the benefits and challenges facing health care leaders as the industry transitions to a value-based care model.

Participants get a behind-the-scenes look at the Musculoskeletal Institute space and are introduced to a clinical team huddle. During the clinic tour, providers are available to answer questions about working on a multidisciplinary team and offer their perspective on the care models.

The program is developed with health care professionals in mind. This includes providers, payers, business managers and more.
