As a part of this blog series, we’ve discussed what the transition from volume-to-value based care looks like for the Provider as well as the Physician. Although, it could be argued that no segment of the healthcare industry has as much influence in ushering in this new care model as Payors do. What does this mean for the Payor? How will they be impacted and what can they do to ensure a smooth transition to this new model?

What does Value-Based Care mean to Payors?

Volume-based care (fee-for-service) has caused great challenges in healthcare throughout the past decades.

The Shift

With the current volume-based care model, providers are rewarded for the number of procedures and services performed as opposed to the patient’s outcome from the services that were provided. Many agree that the shift to value-based care is going to be better for the patient, but how can this shift positively impact the provider? And how can the provider be better prepared for the changes that are to come?

What Should Providers Do?

2016.11.9 Medical PatrioticThere is a dramatic transition of power occurring in the United States.

That is, the Healthcare industry’s transition from volume-based care to value-based care. You didn’t think we were talking about The Election, did you?

The shift from pay for volume (fee-for-service) to pay for value (value-based care) is here. This can be an intimidating and confusing topic and many are wondering why this change is occurring.
