Janice will lead roundtable discussion, Planning for Value-Based Purchasing:

What should device companies do to be prepared for the shift to value-based purchasing that is underway? What can we learn from early experiments with bundled payments for total joint replacements (the CJR program)? This session will explore how providers, device manufacturers, health plans and physicians are adapting to outcomes-based contracts and bundled payments. Also, we’ll discuss potential unintended consequences of a value-based approach to payment in healthcare.
