It's no secret that the American health care system is rapidly changing and the move towards value-based care is here. Health care providers today can no longer “wait and see” if our system will make the official leap and move from fee-for service care, we have taken it. In order for health systems to be effective and profitable in their transition to value-based care, its critical to understand your local market, develop payor strategies aligned to your patient population, engage physicians, and implement the appropriate process and cost reduction strategies. According to a December 2016 Vizient survey, 51% of C-suite leaders support continued use of value-based reimbursement models. In order to be effective in all of the above, it requires deep data and insights, thoughtful execution and strong change management.
