The Future of Value-Based Payment w/ François de Brantes of Remedy – 086

On this episode, we talk with François de Brantes, Senior Vice President of Commercial Business Development at Remedy, about the future of value-based payment. François shares with us the importance of transparency, measurement, and responsibility and tells us why payment reform is such an effective lever to drive change. You’ll hear about models that have been successful, how employers are driving change, and what you can expect from the next generation of value-based payment. In addition, François shares his insights on how we can account for the social determinants of health (SDOH) in our program design.  This section led to a significant “aha” moment for me and underscores the importance of incorporating community-based organizations (CBOs) more tightly with our traditional healthcare delivery system.

François de Brantes will be a keynote speaker at the inaugural VBP Forward Conference in Buffalo, NY on February 20th and 21st, 2019.


This episode is sponsored by VBP Forward:

VBP Forward will host its inaugural conference February 20-21, 2019 in Buffalo, NY at the Hyatt Regency Buffalo. The conference will bring together over 200 professionals who serve Medicaid and Medicare special needs or complex populations or have an interest in that value chain. Participants will gain insight into the next generation of value-based payment and will be provided with a roadmap for their path towards effective value payment for special needs populations. In addition to clinical providers, VBP Forward will have a track and focus on guiding community-based organizations down the right path for the collection of social determinants of health and how they can become not only an integral part of care delivery but also the revenue cycle associated with that delivery.


About François de Brantes: 

François de Brantes serves as Senior Vice President of Commercial Business Development at Remedy Partners. He leads customer development of the Medicare Advantage, Self-Insured Employer, and Commercial Payer markets. He has spent close to two decades working to transform the U.S. healthcare system by improving incentives for providers and consumers in order to encourage value-based decisions.

Prior to joining Remedy Partners, he served as Vice President of Altarum, a national nonprofit. From 2006 to 2016, he was Executive Director of the Health Care Incentives Improvement Institute (HCI3), a not-for-profit company that designed programs to motivate physicians and hospitals to improve the quality and affordability of healthcare delivery. The organization, which merged with Altarum in December 2017, was responsible for the Bridges to Excellence® (BTE) and PROMETHEUS Payment® programs, which compensate and reward clinicians that focus on episodes of care and performance measures.

Prior to HCI3, François was Chief Operating Officer of the eHealth Initiative (eHI), which promotes adoption of health information technology in the U.S. He led the development of eHI’s HIE Value and Sustainability Model, a method to value services offered by Health Information Exchanges. Early in his career working in General Electric’s corporate health care department, he was involved in many strategic programs that created, connected and supported Active Consumers, and defined market mechanisms to reward providers for better performance.

François holds a master’s degree in Economics and Finance from the University of Paris IX-Dauphine and a master’s degree in Business Administration from the Tuck School of Business Administration at Dartmouth College.




About Remedy: 

Remedy operates the nation’s largest bundled payment network. Remedy is not only an operator of bundled payment programs, but actively manages and assumes financial risk with providers that are contracted for at-risk bundles. Remedy works hand in hand with the payer and the providers to deliver bankable savings by implementing double-sided risk programs.

We believe that it’s only by sharing financial risk that bundled payment operators can truly become partners with the payer and the providers in the transformation of the delivery system and achieve better quality and cost outcomes. All of the bundled payment programs that Remedy has participated in and implements are risk-based.
