2019 Value-based Health Care Delivery Seminar

Oct. 23-24, 2019

The health care landscape is changing rapidly, with new policy developments altering the way that health care is delivered, measured and reimbursed. Central to most policy initiatives is an effort to restructure health care delivery around value for patients, where value is defined as the health outcomes achieved per dollar spent. Value-based health care delivery starts with providers, and we believe it is essential that physicians in training have a thorough understanding of this concept.

We are excited to announce our next Value-based Health Care Delivery Seminar, to be held from 5-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2019 and 8 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 24, 2019 in the Executive Education Classroom at the Owen Graduate School of Management, Vanderbilt University. 

Featuring Keynote Speaker:


Farzad Mostashari, MD, ScM, CEO and Co-Found, Aledade, Inc.

Dr. Farzad Mostashari is the CEO of Aledade, a startup he co-founded aimed at helping primary care doctors transform their practices and form accountable care organizations (ACOs). Prior to Aledade, he was a Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington DC, where he focused on payment reform and delivery system transformation.

He served from 2011-2013 as the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology where he coordinated US efforts to build a health information technology infrastructure for healthcare reform and consumer empowerment, in addition to programs for health information exchange, health IT workforce, research, and privacy and security.

What previous attendees have said:

  • Very thorough review of current health care models as they apply to our work; very relevant program with tangible opportunities for action.

  • This is an excellent seminar on measuring value in health care that examines value from a multi-disciplinary perspective, i.e., business, regulation, clinical and data science.

  • Outstanding opportunity to step back and look at health care delivery challenges, problems, people, policy, and platforms.

  • If you are looking for a smart, efficient, and engaging introduction to a daunting subject, this is it!

  • Highly recommend for anyone interested in value, cost, quality improvement. This is a must! This will immediately influence how I think about [my] research proposals.
