Event Recap

A  Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network (LAN) webinar was held on November 10, 2015 to discuss πopulation-based ayments with over 200 virtual attendees comprised of providers, health plan buyers, and others who have either explored or launched alternative payment models (APMs) within their organizations.
