Committee on Financial Readiness 

New value-based contracts are requiring different operational competencies from providers regardless of their configuration. Organizations need to understand the operational implications, so they are ready to perform as soon as contracts go into effect. This committee will focus its discussions on the ways successful health systems are evaluating their organizational readiness to bear risk and operationalize the transition to value.
