Everyone is talking about value-based care, and everyone is saying it will happen soon. But when is it for? And what is values-based care, in particular? You may be familiar with the concept, but are you familiar enough to know how to change your workflow if your hospital announces a transition to value-based care tomorrow?
To address this information gap, Humana and the University of Houston launched a values-based care education course on Coursera earlier this year. Tray Cockerell, Director of Strategic Relations at Humana, and Avra Bowers, Medical Director at Humana, join host Jonah Comstock to discuss the course, how it came about and why it is needed now.
