Building Successful PAC Preferred Provider Networks

Integrating to Optimize Patient Care

From new reimbursement models to an aging population to an increased focus on holistic treatment, key trends are converging to drive the surging growth in post-acute care (PAC) preferred provider networks. Hospitals and health systems are seeking to integrate with PAC by creating networks of preferred providers that collaborate to optimize patient care across settings. A Premier survey of 82 hospitals and health systems found that 95% indicate developing PAC networks to support population health is a major focus over the next three years.


In a new webinar, Manatt Health revealed the drivers behind the rise of PAC networks…the complexities of forming them…and what you need to know and do to ensure success.
The program will:

  • Identify the similarities and differences between PAC and long-term services and supports.
  • Examine recent demographic, payment and delivery system trends impacting hospitals and health systems—and fueling the growth in PAC networks.
  • Define what a PAC preferred provider network is—and how it can benefit both hospitals and PAC providers.
  • Explain how your organization can create and implement a strategy and business case to address health system and PAC needs.
