Transition to Value-Based Reimbursement and Improve Quality of Care

Value Based HealthcareAs the market shifts from fee-for-service to value-based healthcare and reimbursement, hospitals, health systems, practices and insurers alike face many challenges. The increase in alternative payment models that tie reimbursement to quality is shifting more risk to providers. Likewise, government and commercial insurance programs are seeking to reduce medical loss ratios and achieve better outcomes at a lower cost.

The plan to transition to value-based reimbursement will be different for each healthcare stakeholder. From working with risk-based contracts, to developing new care models and physician networks, to implementing shared savings programs or management services organizations, or to building accountable care organizations (ACOs) and PCMH models, every healthcare organization is in the process of defining their unique, value-based initiatives and strategies in order to be successful.
