Allocation of Value-Based Payment Incentive Payments to Optimize Performance – VBP Foundations Part 3

One of the greatest threats to success for clinically integrated networks is an uneven commitment from disparate providers to improve patient outcomes and reduce avoidable, low-value healthcare costs. Success depends on providers investing time and other resources to achieve performance targets.

This webinar will explore principles and examples of distribution methodologies aimed at fairly allocating those dollars.

Value-Based Payment: Is it Disrupting Healthcare for the Better? Role of a Clinically Integrated Network – FQHC Part 3

Medicare, state Medicaid agencies, managed care organizations, and commercial insurers are increasingly adopting value-based payment (VBP) models. Community Health Centers (CHCs) are uniquely positioned to deliver on that high expectation by offering enhanced access to high-quality primary care, coordinating the care delivered by specialists, hospitals, and other institutions, and care managing the most complex individuals. This requires CHCs to transform their care delivery to efficiently deliver optimal patient- and population-level health outcomes and successfully manage costs. Many CHCs are forming clinically integrated Networks to create contracting leverage, make joint investments in data analytics, and collaborate to develop complex care management and clinical models of care. This webinar will explore that national trend and how it may apply to District of Columbia CHCs.
