Starting the transition from fee-for-service to value-based care is a challenge. Many provider organizations are simultaneously juggling new reimbursement models with old ones and breaking institutional memory to meaningfully move toward changes.
One hospital began its journey to value-based care with an organizational assessment. The value-based care assessment helps the hospital understand which value-based care contracts it is most prepared for and how to balance this transition with existing fee-for-service reimbursement, the director of case management told Insights during a recent anonymous discussion about the division’s latest findings.
Like many provider organizations, this hospital knows the transition to value-based care is coming and might soon be thrust upon them. The assessment is helping it prepare for the inevitable.
