Today, the Health Care Transformation Task Force released a new resource to assist health care payer and provider efforts to form successful Alternative Payment Model (APM) arrangements. The resource, titled BUILDING BETTER PARTNERSHIPS: A FACILITATION GUIDE FOR SUCCESSFUL VALUE BASED PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS, combines fresh insights from Task Force members with existing tools and best practice summaries to create a practical guide for those tasked with negotiating and operating APMs.
“At the core, successful value-based payment arrangements are rooted in effective partnerships,” said Jeff Micklos, Task Force Executive Director. “Trust among like-minded collaborators is an essential ingredient.”
“Effective value partnerships begin with preparation,” said David Terry, CEO of Archway Health. “Organizations cannot be effective partners if they don’t know what they seek in a value-based arrangement.”
