In this webinar, presenters provide an overview of value-based payment models implemented by community health centers, including key drivers and lessons learned when implementing these models.

Rob Houston and Greg Howe from Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) provide an overview of alternative payment model frameworks and common value-based payment approaches.
