BURLINGTON, Mass., March 10, 2020 – Arcadia (arcadia.io), a widely-recognized leader in population health management, today announced the launch of “Arcadia’s Value-Based Care Leadership Series” to provide a virtual conference to ensure HIMSS attendees, as well as others, will still be able to attend the six general education sessions from their notable and innovative clients. This virtual conference will feature presentations by the leaders in value-based care who were scheduled to present at HIMSS20.

“Arcadia is proud that our innovative provider clients were recognized by HIMSS to deliver sessions about how they’ve successfully navigated value-based payment models,” said Arcadia chief executive officer Sean Carroll. “These customers have agreed to provide their experiences and successes, in a virtual format, over the next few weeks because they are eager to share with peers how to overcome the uncertainty of transitioning from volume-based to value-based care. The honors they were recognized for by HIMSS highlight Arcadia’s dedication to partnering with them and helping to succeed in the evolution of healthcare delivery.”  

The virtual conference will feature seven separate webinars and will kick off on Wednesday, March 11 at 11:15 am Eastern with a lunch-and-learn webinar featuring Dr. John Halamka of the Mayo Clinic. Dr. Halamka, who is known for his work at the forefront of technology-enabled care delivery and serves as president of Mayo Clinic Platform, a digital health initiative designed to transform care delivery, will discuss his thoughts on the state of digital health.

Following the initial webinar on March 11, Arcadia will conduct a new webinar almost every week throughout March, April and May. Healthcare leaders will share their strategies in achieving success and the importance of data and analytics technology in the transition to value-based payment models.
