MAC Session 5: Alternative Models of Maternity Care Delivery & Determining Services

The purpose of this meeting is to help payers and providers determine which services should be included in an episode, with a focus on the importance of alternative care modalities that can improve care experience and outcomes. Through the discussion of alternative care delivery models, participants will be prepared to take the next step in designing a maternity episode model or other APM to support alternative care delivery services, in order to arrive at value-based care.

Session Materials

Session Goals

  • Learn about options for maternity care delivery models outside of traditional OB/GYN and hospital births, and discuss the factors to consider in determining which services to include in an APM.
  • Ask questions of and interact with each other and expert discussants who represent organizations that have incorporated innovative models into their maternity APMs and understand how they determined which services to include.
  • Identify leading and promising practices for further action
  • Commit to action steps specific to this topic
  • Solicit participant feedback and any specific requests for future meetings
  • Understand the value of these alternative care delivery and birth sites, related to patient experience, patient outcomes, and costs.
  • Understand and discuss services to include in an episode across the entire perinatal episode (prenatal, labor and delivery, and postpartum care), and recognize how these choices intersect with the patient population (e.g., baby and NICU).

Expert Discussants

  • Cara Osborne, Baby +Co

To achieve the goal of better care, smarter spending, and healthier people, the U.S. health care system must substantially reform its payment structure to incentivize quality, health outcomes, and value over volume. The Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network (LAN) was established as a collaborative network of public and private stakeholders, including health plans, providers, patients, employers, consumers, states, federal agencies, and other partners within the health care community.
