The U.S. healthcare industry continues to inch toward value-based care (VBC) and away from a fee-for-service system. Over the past eight years, the number of U.S. states and territories that implement VBC programs has spiked––rising from three states in 2011 to 48 as of 2018.
To stay abreast of this movement, in August, Definitive Healthcare, a provider of data and intelligence on hospitals, physicians, and other healthcare providers, polled 1,090 healthcare leaders across the provider, biotech, financial services, staffing, life sciences, IT, and consulting industries to determine predictions for the future of VBC. With 791 total responses, these healthcare leaders helped identify:
1. The biggest barriers to implementing VBC;
2. Factors accelerating the adoption of VBC;
3. Benefits of VBC; and
4. How VBC will shift in 2020
