    Value-Based Finance Models For EMS

    Free Webinar June 11 at 2:00 p.m. ET | Register Now►

    How successfully has EMS proven its value—as defined by the people who pay for our services? The answer to that question is crucial as the healthcare system continues its rapid transformation to economic models based on value. This informational, and at times controversial, webinar will guide participants through examples of the healthcare finance value transformation, illustrate the recent publications that seem challenge the value of the current EMS economic model, and highlight ways EMS can change and tailor the value proposition to our most important stakeholders.
