  • Value-based Payments and Primary Care

    Over the past two decades, Medicare and commercial payers have increasing linked healthcare payments to quality. These new payment models are broadly referred to as value-based, as payers primarily focus on clinical and financial outcomes of patients rather than simply paying for services in an unsustainable fee-for-service model.

Primary care clinicians can be rewarded with additional revenue for creating efficient care delivery by developing the skill sets to manage value-based care.
