Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 04, 2016
Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) is pleased to announce the launch of a new series of online training programs, with an inaugural course on value-based payment programs. Prepared by the on-staff experts at AIS, a leader in health business information solutions for the past 25 years, the training programs are ideal for sales and customer service staffs; product design, marketing and business managers; new or reassigned staff members, and others at health plans, hospitals, medical groups and pharmaceutical manufacturers.
Value-based care — an increasingly popular payment model under which health care services are paid for based on quality rather than quantity — has proliferated since passage of the Affordable Care Act. AIS’s user-friendly four-module program is a terrific introduction to this transformative health business trend. It includes:
- Training Module #1: Program Design and Characteristics — Easy-to-follow explanations of patient centered medical homes, accountable care organizations, and bundled and global payment models.
- Training Module #2: The Role of Private Payers — Details of the current landscape, future projections, and insurer supports and program impact.
- Training Module #3: The Role of Pharma — Valuable takeaways on partnership models with entities such as drug manufacturers, specialty pharmacy providers and retail pharmacy chains.
- Training Module #4: Single-Specialty Payment Models — Clear explanations of specialties, including oncology, pediatric programs, diabetes, asthma, maternity care and end-stage renal disease.
Plus, at the conclusion of each module, True-False “Knowledge Checks” permit users to assess their understanding of the subject matter.
“Value-based care is the most powerful health care payment trend in a generation,” says AIS Executive Editor Jill Brown. “This program will make sure your whole team is up-to-date on the latest trends and strategies in this fast-changing field.”
Future programs in AIS’s online training series will focus on the most complex and critically important issues in health care today. The next four-module program, on oncology management strategies, will be released soon.
