America's health system, while the world's leader in many extraordinary complex medical treatments, is expensive and rife with problems of access, cost effectiveness and quality and patient safety. Many critics find perverse tax policy, coverage and payment incentives at the very heart of the challenges facing medical care in the United States. Across the health system healthcare professionals and executives, innovators, entrepreneurs and health reformers are experimenting with innovations in benefit package design, provider payment methodologies, gainsharing and shared ownership arrangements in an effort to reverse perverse incentives to motivate behavior that will improve the nation's health system and to induce practices that will improve access, cost effectiveness and quality and patient safety.

The purpose of the National Healthcare Incentives Institute is to convene national and international experts on healthcare incentives and to share innovative initiatives and practical case studies in the following:

  • The Role of Government, Employers, Health Plans and Providers in Healthcare Incentive Innovation
  • Value-based Benefit Package Design and Consumer Health and Wellness Incentives
  • Topics on Medicare and Medicaid Payment Reforms
  • Transparency, Pay for Performance and Incentive Payments
  • Non-financial Incentives, such as Disclosure and Peer Review
