2 experts to physicians: Value-based care is her to stay

Share this:


Ingrid Lund, Ph.D., practice manager for the physician practice roundtable at  The Advisory Board Co.,  and Eric Cragun, senior director for health policy at the Advisory Board, agreed in a Physicians Practice podcast that value-based care is here to stay, as is much of the Affordable Care Act.

Ms. Lund said: “Certainly whatever the GOP does, whatever their next move on healthcare reform is, it will impact providers in some way, but I think we can agree there are some safer bets and ways to move strategy forward even though we’re in this point of uncertainty.”

She also said that the bi-partisan Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) will stick around and that physicians should continue to adapt to the move toward risk-based contracts.

Another “safe bet,” according to Ms. Lund, is to “double down on your consumerism strategy” thanks to the rise of health savings accounts and high-deductible health plans.
