Curious what a Q1 Productions Forum looks like?

Here are highlights from the 2018 Forums hosted in Philadelphia. Special thanks to Infinix for putting this together.

“In healthcare, transactions are built around relationships – not the other way around. Q1 Productions incubates deep relationships between C suite level participants – not just superficial networks. Attendance and content is highly curated so that the stage is set for rich, intimate discussion and exchange of experiences and ideas. This is not the usual business card exchange conference that I generally try to avoid – it is a chance to make new friends and learn from them.”

“It has truly been a pleasure to work with the Q1 team in the planning and executing of several revenue cycle and physician alignment conferences. I have enjoyed the discussion format, and the material is relevant and engaging. I have met many interesting people through my association with Q1 Productions.”

“Thank you for inviting me to participate in the conference last week. It was my first time going to a conference with that format. I found it to be much more useful than the typical conference where one person talks about their specific situation, and then you awkwardly walk the exhibit hall. Being new to the Revenue Cycle space, it was helpful in getting to know peers and vendors.”

About the Forum:

As the Accountable Care Organization model continues to evolve, leadership teams are facing an environment where government and commercial payers expect a level of downside risk to be integrated, causing concern and a need for delivery of even higher levels of efficient patient care. Focusing a great deal on risk appetites as well as bundled payments, alternative payment models and progressive value-based contracts with commercial payers while also engaging patients and physicians in the model is of essential importance in moving the ACO model into the future.

Topics Being Addressed Include:

  • Next Generation ACOs Driving Quality & Cost Effectiveness
  • Adjusting Variability in Risk Levels in the ACO Model
  • Evolving CMS Policies & Frameworks Impacting ACOs
  • ACO Success Beyond Medicare Shared Savings Program
  • Increasing Patient Participation in Accountable Care Organizations
  • Provider Engagement & Increased Participation of HCPs
  • Exceeding Care Delivery Quality Standards & Metrics
