January 26 – We discussed the sustainability planning milestone, proposed questions for reporting, and actions you can take NOW to prepare for the sustainability of your project.

March 3 – We heard from guest speakers from UT Health Houston on the topic of cost analysis/effectiveness of DSRIP projects. This is a critical component of a sustainability strategy, and is proposed to be required in DY7-8. Knowing how much your project costs and potentially saves your system may drive decisions on continuation, expansion, and value based purchasing arrangements. Lead Guest Speaker: Dr. Charles. E. Begley, Division of Management, Policy, and Community Health; The University of Texas-Houston School of Public Health

March 7 – We learned about Value-Based Purchasing and Alternative Payment Models. As the healthcare system’s agenda and landscape evolves to focus on improved care and reduced costs, providers may benefit from business opportunities with value based payment.  In this webinar, the guest presenters shared both the promise and potential peril of value based payment models. Guest Speakers: Bren Manaugh and Amanda Ternan, Health Management Associates
