This session will consist of real-life learnings and discussions that relate directly to the SOA ‘Value-Based Care’ initiative - The Role of the Health Care Provider Actuary, a Strategic Initiative of the SOA Health Section. The initiative’s focus is on building the necessary foundation for health care actuaries to support health care providers in managing their value- based care arrangements. See the article “Value-Based Care: The Role of the Health Care Provider Actuary” in the February 2018 edition of Health Watch for further information. The learnings will be delivered by a panel of experts who support providers in a multitude of subject areas.
Participants should have a better understanding of the current provider environment and how their business is changing as a result of external influences like ACA, MACRA, etc. They should come away with a clear understanding of the skill sets (high level) that are needed for providers to be successful in the new VBC world, particularly which of these skills are currently being fulfilled by actuaries and which are expected to increase in demand in the future.
