Rita E. Numerof, Ph.D., will present to healthcare industry leaders at the annual AHA/Health Forum Annual Leadership Summit in San Diego, July 19, 2011.

Drawing on her 30 years of experience working with major providers, payers, and manufacturers, Dr. Numerof’s session, Bundled Payment: The Next Step in Improving Quality and Reducing Cost, will describe the steps necessary to develop a bundled payment offering. Committing to deliver a standardized set of services for a fixed price calls for new ways of doing business that depart significantly from the current model. Dr. Numerof will discuss key considerations that providers will need to address to make this innovation successful.
