Episode Synopsis

Many healthcare providers are struggling as expenses skyrocket and elective procedures are deferred or canceled altogether, eliminating major revenue sources. Value-based initiatives are on-hold because most value-based arrangements require a significant financial commitment to start and healthcare providers are less likely to put more money at risk. Providers have shifted their focus to sustaining losses from the outbreak.

Justin and Alex explain what is happening in the industry to mitigate total shared losses and reduce the burden on providers. They also discuss their opinions on how COVID-19 will impact value-based strategies.
