    Payment Reform in the Trump Era

    Shifting to a payment system based on value remains a goal of the federal government and a priority for Wisconsin hospitals. But how far along the spectrum have they come and what’s delaying further progress? What does payment reform look like under the Trump administration? Is uncertainty at the federal level having any impact?

    A panel of experts will debate these questions and more at a Wisconsin Health News Panel Series event July 10 in Milwaukee.

    Panelists: 

    • Eric Haberichter, CEO, Access HealthNet 
    • Dr. Michelle Graham, Chief Medical Officer, UnitedHealthcare  
    • Naomi Wedin, Executive Director, Bellin Health Partners
