Much of the conversation around the Affordable Care Act, or ACA, has focused on health coverage. But the ACA also will fundamentally change the way health care is delivered. One change to the delivery of care is organizing a team to care for patients with a specific medical condition, from before treatment through recovery. This team-based approach helps patients by improving outcomes and establishing a predictable cost for the entire episode.

Join us for a unique panel discussion about three Providence coordinated care packages that incorporate these key principles:

  • Total joint replacement
  • Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery
  • Pregnancy

This is a rare opportunity to interact directly with the medical leaders developing these packages. Through this discussion, you'll learn more about these care packages and the compelling outcomes and cost savings they're achieving.

To attend, please RSVP to Becky Larson at 503-574-6247 or becky.larson@providence.org no later than April 3.
