What is Value-Based Care?
Introduction to Value-Based Care (VBC)

With the goal of reducing national healthcare spend, value-based care stands poised to do just that, with a focus on quadruple aim; lower costs, improved quality, better patient outcomes and increased physician satisfaction.

What is Value-Based Care?

Value-based care is the concept that healthcare providers should be reimbursed based on patient outcomes instead of the volume of services provided.

How does value-based care work?
Value-based care is grounded in helping individuals maintain their highest possible level of wellness rather than waiting to provide care until patients get sick, which is often a more complex and expensive task.
What are value-based care arrangements?

In value-based care arrangements, healthcare providers contract with payers, such as Medicare and Medicaid, and commercial insurance companies, to care for a defined set of attributed patients.

Both commercial and government payers are promoting participation in value-based care with a wide range of programs and options.

How does value-based care reduce costs?

In order to earn financial rewards or avoid negative payment adjustments, providers must meet specific performance and quality measures that are tied to better long-term outcomes for patients.

What is an Accountable Care Organization (ACO)?

In order to implement the necessary changes in a coordinated and sustainable manner, healthcare providers can work together within accountable care organizations (ACOs), which are groups of physicians, hospitals, and/or other clinicians jointly responsible for managing an attributed population.

ACOs create a structured framework for tackling the two major components of value-based care, improving care management and financial risk.
