Cleveland Clinic is bringing together thought leaders in value-based care redesign and payment reform to share their insights on healthcare’s most pressing challenges and their organizations’ best practices, during the 3rd annual Value-Based Innovation Summit on Oct. 21 to 23, at the Global Center for Health Innovation in downtown Cleveland.

The Value-Based Innovation Summit provides attendees a unique networking and business development opportunity with industry leaders, immersion in cross-disciplinary discussion, and access to insight from renowned speakers shaping the healthcare market through innovative approaches to care delivery.

“Cleveland Clinic continues to embrace value-based care by improving the cost and quality of care delivered to patients,” said Doug Chaet, Chief Managed Care Officer at Cleveland Clinic. “As healthcare continues to transform care delivery and increase accountability, this is a great opportunity to bring healthcare leaders from across the U.S. and internationally to discuss value-based solutions and industry best practices.”

Key topics at the summit will include: best practices in payer-provider partnerships; value-based perspectives from managed care executives and purchasers; the international transformation from volume to value; advances in value-based clinical care and innovative care models; the design and implementation of Cleveland Clinic’s population healthcare model; emerging government payment models, and more.

This year’s keynote speaker is Michael E. Porter from Harvard Business School. As an economist, researcher, author and teacher, he has brought economic theory and strategy concepts to bear on many of the most challenging problems facing corporations, economies and societies, including market competition and company strategy, economic development, and healthcare. His approach is based on understanding the overall economics and structure of complex systems, in contrast to particular elements or parts. As one of the most cited scholar in economics and business today, his extensive research is widely recognized and has received numerous awards.

Featured speakers for the summit include:

  • Doug Chaet, Chief Managed Care Officer, Cleveland Clinic
  • Robert Lorenz, M.D., Medical Director of Specialty Contracting, Cleveland Clinic
  • Paul Marchetti, Senior Vice President, Network & Care Delivery Transformation, Anthem
