What They’re Watching: Lisa Chan-Sawin

Lisa Chan-Sawin, principal at Transform Health, sits down with us in this edition of What They’re Watching to talk about payment reform.

There’s a lot of discussion and a lot of activity around transforming the way we deliver care, but all of that has to be tied with the way payment systems work. And so, I think there’s going to be a larger conversation around payment reform. Each of these different initiatives are tied to new APM [Alternative Payment Model] approaches, and so that learning is going to be really helpful in the long run. But there’s a lot of dollars in the health care system and we have to, as a collective, figure out how to use those dollars better and more efficiently. So that’s something that I’m watching very carefully and I think that we’ll actually be the main driver of how we can, of how the health care system’s going to transform in the long run.
