About The Webinar Event

Over the last year, CAPC—in partnership with the National Business Group on Health and the California HealthCare Foundation—has been working on an initiative with payers and providers to describe the ways in which payers are supporting palliative care for their members with serious illness. The initiative will also assist payers and providers in partnering to address the needs of this population.

The result of this effort is the development of a toolkit entitled, “Improving the Care of Serious Illness through Innovative Payer-Provider Partnerships,” available for free download at

This web conference is the first in a series of payer-provider partnership related topics. We will introduce the payer toolkit and review a “payer strategies framework” which categorizes the innovations happening in the field.

This session is intended to help create a better understanding of the mechanisms by which payers can support palliative care principles and practices. This will be important to both support the growth of palliative care and the development of new payer-provider relationships with the emergence of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and other financial risk-sharing arrangements.
