59: Direct Contracting: How Disruptive is it?
The industry has waited anxiously for the launch of Medicare’s Direct Contracting model.

However, a global pandemic and a new administration may have complicated program roll-out. On this week’s episode of Sg2 Perspectives, Consulting Principal, Tawnya Bosko and, Intelligence Associate Principal, Brian Esser discuss DC’s status, changes to the program, and key considerations for health systems who plan to participate.
