2nd Annual AdvaMed Payment Policy Conference
Innovation Challenges: Demonstrating Medtech’s Value in a Changing Payer World

AdvaMed's 2nd Annual Payment Policy Conference focuses on the growing importance of demonstrating value in medtech. As the industry moves into a changing payer world of alternative payment models such as accountable care organizations and bundling, the need for a medical device to show how it improves efficiency and quality of care becomes greater. The conference will feature speakers from hospitals, insurers, device manufacturers, CMS, and Capitol Hill, and will provide attendees with a variety of perspectives on the challenges medtech companies face in the future of the payment landscape.

Agenda topics include:

  • Keynote Addresses
  • Washington’s Health Care Policy Makers
  • Demonstrating Value in a Changing Payer World
  • Population Health: From Fee-for-Service to ACOs and Beyond
  • Private Payers & Integrated Plans: Ensuring Access to Innovation
  • Paying for Episodes of Care: Past, Present & Future
  • Innovative Contracting Ideas and Risk Reimbursement
  • Telehealth and Digital Health
