Embracing new health care payment models

The race to adopt value based health pricing is in full swing

When it comes to health care reimbursement models, there is no one “right” solution. The choice depends on each payer’s capabilities and goals.

What are industry perceptions of value based care?

Health care stakeholders face unique opportunities and challenges when it comes to successfully implementing value based health care reimbursement. Even within specific industries and functions, individual organizations should view implementing new payment models through their own unique, strategic lens.

We recognize that value based care requires more than just changing a payment model; it also means helping organizations transform care delivery and financing, as well as diagnostic and therapeutic discovery, with the aim of advancing patient outcomes, reducing the total cost of care, and enhancing the consumer experience.

Here are a few ways that your organization can get the ball rolling:

  • Gauge where your organization is currently
  • Identify your goals for the future
  • Assess your capabilities and understand gaps
  • Create a governance structure
