For years we’ve been hearing that the US healthcare system is moving towards value-based care, whereby providers are paid through alternatives to the traditional, fee-for-service payment model. These alternative payment models include financial incentives linked to effectively managing a population or episode of care, such as shared savings, at-risk, pay-for-performance, care coordination fee, bundled payments or capitated payments. Today, approximately 60% of healthcare spend is tied to some form of value-based payment.

HL7’s Working Group meeting is coming to Canada from May 4 to 10, hosted at Le Sheraton Centre, Montreal.

HL7’s Working Group meeting consists of several components: the FHIR connectathon, HL7 education, working group sessions and Clinicians on FHIR.
