Accountable care organizations, bundled payment models and readmission penalties, among other payment changes, require acute care hospitals and health systems to develop new post-acute care strategies.  Health systems face the dilemma of building out a continuum of care or focusing on the acute core mission.

McDermott Will & Emery has assembled a panel comprising leading lawyers and consultants, as well as representatives from a large nonprofit acute care system and public post-acute operator to address reimbursement changes and drivers, developments in the post-acute sector and collaboration options between post-acute providers.  Join our panel for a lively and dynamic discussion of important considerations and options to help listeners develop new post-acute care strategies.
