Enhancing Patient Outcomes and Payer Negotiations:

Strategies for Collecting Data for Rehabilitation Providers


In this comprehensive session, we will delve into the symbiotic relationship between patient outcomes and payer negotiations within the realms of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. As healthcare professionals, it is imperative to not only deliver high-quality care but also demonstrate the value and effectiveness of our services to payers and stakeholders.

During this session, participants will explore the intersection of patient outcomes and payer negotiations by:

  1. Linking Outcomes to Payer Negotiations: We will elucidate how collecting robust outcomes data serves as a powerful tool for payer negotiations. Participants will gain insights into how demonstrating positive patient outcomes can strengthen negotiating positions with payers, leading to favorable reimbursement rates and contract terms.
  2. Selecting Outcome Measures for Payer Requirements: Participants will learn how to align outcome measures with payer requirements and quality metrics. We will discuss the importance of selecting outcome measures that resonate with payers and demonstrate the tangible impact of therapy services on patient health, functionality, and overall well-being.
  3. Building a Compelling Case: Through case studies and role-playing scenarios, participants will explore strategies for constructing persuasive arguments based on outcomes data during payer negotiations. Emphasis will be placed on articulating the clinical and economic value of therapy services in terms that resonate with payers' priorities and objectives.
  4. Demonstrating Cost-effectiveness: We will examine how outcomes data can be leveraged to demonstrate the cost-effectiveness of therapy interventions and their potential to mitigate long-term healthcare costs. Participants will learn how to quantify the return on investment (ROI) associated with therapy services and present compelling evidence to support their negotiation efforts.
  5. Navigating Reimbursement Models: With the evolving landscape of healthcare reimbursement models, participants will gain insights into navigating value-based care initiatives, bundled payments, and alternative payment models. We will discuss how outcomes data can inform negotiations within various reimbursement frameworks and foster collaborative partnerships with payers.
  6. Ethical and Legal Considerations: Participants will explore ethical and legal considerations associated with using outcomes data for payer negotiations, including patient privacy, data integrity, and compliance with regulatory requirements. Strategies for safeguarding patient confidentiality and maintaining the integrity of outcomes data will be discussed.


***NEW ADDITION TO AGENDA: Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) will be speaking on May 8th***
