Healthcare leaders charged with implementing population health management programs view the value-based care initiative as a tectonic shift in how healthcare will be delivered in the years to come. Their biggest struggle? Convincing providers that their efforts signify more than an unnecessarily complex administrative endeavor.
Many administrators struggle to get physicians to discuss transitioning to value-based reimbursement models, let alone implement them. The reasons for provider resistance are manifold. Some providers have used fee-for-service models their entire career and are loath to change. Others view value-based models as pressure to do more with less, and struggle to see how data analytics and social determinants of health can effectively and efficiently be incorporated into patient care.
