Description: 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.
