Healthcare is moving past “fee for service” payment to a wide range of different financial models. Supporters say that new incentives are encouraging more prevention and better outcomes. Skeptics worry that the most vulnerable could be left behind. All agree healthcare is in transition. Using multiple examples and interactive dialogue, this lecture will explore what these changes mean for collaboration between clinical medicine and public health for the health of children.
Attendees of this session will be able to:
- Describe changing financial incentives in healthcare
- Discuss the opportunities for healthcare and public health to collaborate to advance children’s health
- Identify specific ways that healthcare organizations can establish innovative relationships with public health
