Susan Browning, in a HealthAffairs blog, writes about the realities of implementing value-based payment.

She notes that in a 2014 survey of U.S. physicians by Deloitte that 80 percent oppose a change in reimbursement, including economic incentives, “although many acknowledge that the current system does not offer {adequate?} value to those it serves.”

”These survey results support the theory that if physicians are to actively focus on the key objectives of value-based care (quality/outcomes and cost/price), then processes of care and systems need to be aligned with appropriate care provider teams, organizational structures to facilitate communication and coordination, and data to support analysis and process change from both a clinical and financial perspective.”
