The move to value-based care is not happening a year from now, or in a month, or even tomorrow. It’s happening as we speak.
Why do I say that? An analysis from the Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network (HCP-LAN) in October 2018 revealed that 34% of healthcare dollars of 2017 flowed in from Alternative Payment Models (APMs), which is a steady increase from 23% two years ago.
As more dollars move out of fee-for-service and into value-based reimbursement models, we’re seeing some payment models emerge as predominant ways of healthcare reimbursement. Naturally, Bundled Payment for Care Improvement (BPCI) seems like the next step in a steady march.
