Morning Consult examines the role of value in our healthcare, including a historic look at how value-based payments have evolved since the mid-80’s. MACRA is called out as a government reimbursement model with “staying power” and the article highlights the progress MACRA has made under the ACA and the potential for more growth under the new administration. Looking forward the article notes “the combination of regulatory changes and payer/provider support will further hasten the transition to value-based programs. There’s just no strong consensus among important stakeholders to do otherwise. Who can argue successfully with the basic concepts of paying for quality and transparency? Let’s state it definitively: Value-based payment systems will soon be the state of the art in American health care.”
DCHI also believes that value-based payment models are the future of health care, and is working across the state to transform care practices in an outcomes-based model. Currently, thirty percent of Delaware’s population is currently attributed to primary care provider or health systems enrolled a value-based payment system.
