Interesting editorial from Dr. Harrison with perhaps some peals for all participants and leaders in today’s healthcare environment!
Healthcare leaders still learning how to offer value-based care
Dr. Marc Harrison
January 11, 2020
A group of senior healthcare leaders and I recently discussed the transformation from volume-based care—in which providers are paid based on the number of services they provide and procedures they perform—to value-based care, which rewards us based on the health outcomes of our patients.
This transition represents a huge change in incentives for health systems—encouraging hospitals and physicians to provide high-value, evidenced-based care—determined by comparing clinical results with the cost of care.
Our discussion was held at the Intermountain Healthcare Leadership Institute and I’d like to share some key lessons learned from it, specifically for leaders embarking on the transformation toward value in healthcare.
