Slowly but surely, health care is headed in a new direction – value-based care, in one form or another, is becoming the new norm. However, if you asked health care providers how their day-to-day activities have changed since the start of this transition, most would say they feel stuck between the somewhat conflicting legacy models operating on a fee-for-service premise and the new world of value-based care.
From a care management perspective, executives looking to move to an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) face increasingly complex challenges. Rather than being paid by the treatment, health care providers are paid for having healthy patients. Through experimentation and the right vision, executives can find success operating in this complicated system.
