Opening Keynote: The Road to Value-Based Care: Innovative Strategies for Evolving From a Fee-for-Service Model


David Callender, MD, President and CEO, Memorial Hermann Health System
Erin Asprec, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Memorial Hermann Health System
Alec King, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Memorial Hermann Health System

In this keynote address, Memorial Hermann will talk about its “no regrets strategies.” These are the initiatives that drive high quality and lower costs and are impactful in both traditional fee-for-service and value-based care. Memorial Hermann has applied these strategies internally – in its operations, financial models and delivery systems – and externally, through its investments and services outside the walls of its hospitals and clinics. Memorial Hermann will address how it intends to achieve value from multiple angles and on multiple fronts, both inside the walls of its organization and out in the communities it proudly serves.

9:25 AM - 10:25 AM

Advancing Provider Adoption of Value-Based Care Models

Moderator: Angie Stewart, Custom Content Strategist, Modern Healthcare


Thom Thornton, Healthcare Practice Director, Net at Work
Kristen Woods, MD, Senior Vice President, Chief Network and Physician Experience Officer, Southwestern Health Resources

Kristin Ficery, Health and Public Sector Global Strategy Group Lead, Senior Managing Director, Accenture

Value-based payment models, which reward providers for achieving better health outcomes, have been slow to gain traction and require significant changes to healthcare financing. While research indicates that physician interest in value-based care is high, physicians face financial, operational and administrative hurdles to adoption. This session will explore strategies for reducing risk and accelerating the migration toward value-based care despite these obstacles, including ways to improve care coordination, align resources and maximize financial reward.

How to Utilize AI Effectively in Value-Based Care

Moderator: Maria Castellucci, Deputy Editor, Custom Content, Modern Healthcare

Speaker: Nick Reding, Chief Product Officer, Curation Health

Success in value-based care begins with a provider’s ability to accurately identify, document and manage their patients’ chronic conditions. Artificial intelligence can dramatically augment a physician’s capacity to do this—or it can overwhelm them with noise. In conversation with Nick Reding, chief product officer at Curation Health, we unpack what health plans, provider organizations and care teams should consider when choosing and implementing AI for their clinical and operational needs.

Closing Keynote: How Value-Based Care Benefits Physicians and Patients

Speaker: Alexander Ding, MD, Associate Vice President of Physician Strategy and Advocacy, Humana

Value-based care is team-based interdisciplinary care, quarterbacked by primary care physicians, that breaks down clinical silos. Alex Ding, MD, associate vice president of physician strategy and advocacy at Humana, shares how meeting and supporting physicians where they are and equipping them with tools, data and resources helps create a more holistic approach to care. Dr. Ding will also reveal insights from Humana’s nearly 10 years working in value-based care, including how patients cared for by value-based care physicians experience, on average, better health outcomes, lower costs and more preventative care when compared to those in non-value-based settings and traditional, fee-for-service Medicare.
