Finding the Value in Value-Based Payments

  • June 09, 2020

Value-based payments (VBP) were supposed to help transform healthcare for the better, yet healthcare costs continue to rise at unsustainable rates without any correlation with improved health outcomes. Health insurance providers around the country partaking in VBP programs have continued to see their incentive payments to providers go up, but are left puzzled when their bottom lines don’t reflect the “shared savings”.

In this session we will share how to structure and operationalize your Value Based Payment programs in a way that ties provider incentives with realized health plan gains.

Attendees will learn: 

  • How accurate risk adjustment can help ensure effective target setting
  • How a single, holistic metric can quantify how well a provider takes care of his or her entire patient population within a primary care system
  • How to use data analytics to measure and monitor where potential waste is coming from
  • How to maximize care management resources and impact by selective member targeting
  • The importance of provider data-sharing and transparency
