In a new and exciting “MEDTalk” format that converges medicine, education and delivery reform, the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform presents the Merkin Series on Innovations in Care Delivery. These unique learning opportunities will allow participants to interact with experts about advancements in clinical care and how payment reforms can support clinical innovation.

The series kicked off on April 16th and focused on: “Treating Congestive Heart Failure and the Role of Payment Reform: Lessons from Duke University Health System and the University of Colorado Hospital.” The agenda included seven brief “TED-style” talks that covered the clinical effects of congestive heart failure (CHF), its economic impact on the health system, as well as firsthand experiences from Duke and Colorado about their CHF care strategies, and how they used alternative payment models to support these innovations.
