As the transition of healthcare payment models from volume to value takes longer than expected, healthcare organizations must balance fee for service (FFS) with value-based care (VBC). The transition to VBC will accelerate, but as FFS persists and still generates adequate margins, organizations must also continue to be successful under volume-based reimbursement.
Ten tools can help health systems balance VBC with FFS:
A member perspective.
Cautious investment in hard delivery assets.
Accelerated investment in digital infrastructure.
Innovative digital engagement solutions.
Payer-provider trust and collaboration.
Clinician and administrative alignment.
Physician leadership and accountability.
