Value-based Payments and Primary Care

11:40 EDT 21 Aug 2017 | AHC Media

Over the past two decades, Medicare and commercial payers have increasing linked healthcare payments to quality. These new payment models are broadly referred to as value-based, as payers primarily focus on clinical and financial outcomes of patients rather than simply paying for services in an unsustainable fee-for-service model. This shift provides a unique opportunity for primary care to recapture its place in healthcare delivery as the original advocate for patient-centered care and the center of value. Primary care clinicians can be rewarded with additional revenue for creating efficient care delivery by developing the skill sets to manage value-based care.
