Value-based care continues to take root in healthcare. It’s clear the future of reimbursement will at minimum include a heaping portion of providers being paid for value as opposed to volume.
This is why, as the new year approaches, Healthcare IT News sat down with an expert in value-based care to get his views on what 2022 will hold for the payment system.
Caravan Health President and CEO Tim Gronniger previously was chief of staff and director of delivery system reform at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Caravan Health is a privately held company formed to create sustainable methodologies for health systems to excel in value-based care. In 2019 and 2020, its partners earned $300 million in Medicare savings, more than $120 million in shared savings and quality scores exceeding 97%, the company reported.
Gronniger eyes four areas of importance for value-based care in 2022: telemedicine, staff retention and provider burnout, health equity, and growth in value-based payment.
