Value-Based Care programs continue to expand and grow with many groups now starting to scale early pilot programs. This latest payer research sought to uncover what specific value-based care approaches are being used and how and included a deep dive into episode of care programs.
We will present the findings of our 2018 VBC research in which we asked payers to share what VBC models they are using and how. This research will also detail what approaches payers who are experiencing value-based program success (cost savings and quality improvements) are using.
