Bridging the Divide: Transition to Collaborative Healthcare

The steps to develop a cross-continuum collaborative for care are far from intuitive, and have been undertaken by only a few organizations. Programs and approaches which effectively manage care between and among discharging hospitals, post-acute care providers, home and community-based services, for example, are rare. And too often they don’t succeed in producing the efficiency or productivity hoped for, and so they are not sustainable.

To survive and thrive in a value-based payment environment, providers must quickly learn new approaches, develop deep and lasting collaborative relationships and do so in a way that preserves the best of the care and support they provide patients, clients, end-users and consumers.

But how? How do we build collaboration where there is currently intense competition and secrecy? How can we create teams that are efficient, productive and sustainable?

Dealing With Pharmacy Audits

What will they come up with next? Where are all of these rules and did I sign up for them? Many PBM auditors identify erroneous items as discrepancies that are little more than excuses for grabbing money. Audits can result in huge profits for the PBM, when the pharmacy purchases and sells prescription drugs only to have the money clawed back as a result of some clerical or technical discrepancy. What will they come up with next? Hear from an industry-leading expert on what to look out for and how to avoid audit chargebacks.
