Middleton, MA (PRWEB) July 20, 2016
In the new HealthLeaders Media report, Value-Based Readiness: Building Momentum for Tomorrow’s Healthcare, sponsored by Influence Health, a total of 94% of healthcare leaders indicated they are on a path to value-based care. While survey results point to nearly universal acceptance, implementation of the new model of care shows varying levels of commitment and preparation.
This report, sponsored by Influence Health, details the key priorities health leaders are focusing on as they prepare to dive into the value-based care model. This report includes data from a survey of HealthLeaders Media’s 8,000-plus member executive research panel. A free excerpt can be downloaded at http://www.healthleadersmedia.com/intelligence.
“Results indicate that almost all of the survey respondents are engaged in value-based care efforts, 35% now on a value-based direction, with another 35% involved in early efforts/pilot program, and 24% somewhere in between, which is very encouraging,” says Barbara Walters, D.O., Executive Vice President, Chief Population Health Officer at Trinity Health. As much as providers are increasingly taking the leap towards value-based payment programs, they are doing so, cautiously.
“To gain confidence in advanced communication and engagement technologies, healthcare organizations need careful planning and implementation,” says Bradley D.. Case, CMPE, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Clinical Solutions of Influence Health. “Adopting this forward-thinking will lead organizations down the road to mature systems that show value both from financial and population health viewpoints.”
As the national healthcare system embarks on both the industry’s greatest challenge and great opportunity, the report shows incremental momentum and progression. However, many providers agree, “…This isn’t happening overnight, “says Barbara Walters, DO.
“No one wants to be behind the competency curve when it arrives,” Jonathan Bees, HealthLeaders Media Senior Research adds, “It can be expensive to build competency for a new model before it is financially viable, which is why providers remain cautious.”
