Preventive Care as a Robust Business Model in Healthcare

Wednesday, 28 July, 2021

A Discussion with Li Ern Chen, MD, MSCS, Vice President, Clinical Strategy, Efficiency at ChenMed

To this day, the dominant model of payment in healthcare is fee-for-service. Though there has been a shift towards value-based programs such as bundled payment, patient-centered medical homes, and accountable care organizations, payment structures still seem to favor the type of medicine that provides a fix when something goes wrong.  Even in this progressive environment, preventive care models are unusual. Please join us on July 28 at 7 p.m. Central Standard Time, for an interactive discussion with Li Ern Chen, Preventive Care as a Robust Business Model in Healthcare.
