Blueprint for Building an Effective Statewide Healthcare Cost Benchmark

Manatt

Feb. 5, 2020
4:00 - 5:00 p.m. ET
Webcast

Discover the key lessons learned from the Massachusetts, Oregon and other state benchmarking models — and the seven considerations for creating a successful next-generation benchmarking program.

The focus on healthcare cost containment has grown dramatically since Massachusetts enacted the first cost benchmarking program in 2012. Since the program’s inception, commercial spending growth in Massachusetts has dropped below national rates, generating potentially billions of dollars in avoided spending.

Seeking to control their own healthcare costs, many states are assessing how they can build on the Massachusetts model — and three have moved forward with adopting it. Delaware and Rhode Island have implemented streamlined benchmarking initiatives, and the Oregon legislature has enacted a program that rivals Massachusetts in its aspiration to make benchmarking the leading strategy for improving transparency, strengthening accountability, and aligning payers and providers around shared cost control goals.

What do these benchmarking programs have in common — and where do they differ? How are they evolving over time? What can other states seeking to implement benchmarking programs learn from the Massachusetts and Oregon experiences?

Based on our new white paper for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the webinar will share:

  • An overview of healthcare cost benchmarking and its role as a cost containment strategy
  • An analysis of the Massachusetts model, how it’s changing to respond to a dynamic environment and which aspects other states can replicate
  • A discussion of the emerging Oregon model, the motivations driving it, the timeline for implementation and the critical questions that remain to be answered
  • Guidance on operationalizing a sustainable data collection and reporting model
  • The seven areas that states need to consider in developing their own next-generation benchmarking programs

Presenters:

  • Joel S. Ario, Managing Director, Manatt Health
  • Kevin Casey McAvey, Senior Manager, Manatt Health
  • David Seltz, Executive Director, Massachusetts Health Policy Commission
  • Jeremy Vandehey, Health Policy and Analysis Director, Oregon Health Authority
