The webinar covers the various components of value-based care and explains how the new alternative payments models will make a positive difference for rural hospitals. Rural accountable care organization (ACO) leaders will share their experiences (successes and challenges) with creating culture change to support the transition to value-based care and improve the perception of rural providers within the payer community. Understand the importance and financial impact care coordination and prevention can have on population health.
