Public-private network to push toward value-based models

Share this:


President Obama is promoting the Healthcare Payment Learning and Action Network, a wide-reaching, public-private collaboration meant to speed up the transition to value-based payment models.

To facilitate this collaboration, the network will fulfill the following roles, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and as summarized by FierceHealthcare.

  • “Serve as a convening body to facilitate joint implementation of new models of payment and care delivery.
  • “Identify areas of agreement around movement toward alternative payment models and define how best to report on these new payment models.
  • “Collaborate to generate evidence, share approaches and remove barriers.
  • “Develop common approaches to core issues such as beneficiary attribution, financial models, benchmarking, quality and performance measurement, risk adjustment and other topics raised for discussion.
  • “Create implementation guides for payers, purchasers, providers and consumers.”

The  American Hospital Association (AHA) and some other industry groups back the project.
