As healthcare payment systems move from "fee-for-service" to "fee-for-outcome," healthcare providers must be able to know where on the spectrum between these two stations is best for their system. This presentation will discuss various methodologies, give examples for what each may look like, along with pros and cons to each methodology, and will offer tips on how to maximize profit under each.
