Value-based care is now firmly entrenched in our healthcare system. Payers credit value-based care with lowering costs, improved outcomes, enhanced payer/provider relationships, and improved patient engagement.
With the growth of value-based care models, a trend gaining traction is the transition from treatment at a provider’s site to a patient’s home. This shift to home and community-based care, accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, shows no signs of abating.
Value-based care is well-suited to handle this change. This model by its nature is focused on wellness; members don’t always need facility-based care. Moreover, value-based care factors in both medical and non-medical aspects of an individual. The question then is how best to keep members healthy at home.
