Physicians need new tools for value-based care


Do physicians have the right tools to deliver value-based care?

As Medical Economics reports, a recent study suggests the answer is no.

“Commissioned by Quest Diagnostics and Inovalon, Finding a Faster Path to Value-Based Care shows that the complexity of managing multiple quality-scoring systems, risk-adjustment models, reimbursement rules, incentives and penalties related to value-based care is far more challenging for physicians than may be generally acknowledged. It’s also clear that new tools are needed and wanted to overcome these obstacles.”

The survey found that only 47 percent of respondents agreed that it’s clear to physicians which quality measures apply to their individual patients under value-based care models. Seventy-nine percent  said they don’t know the quality metrics that apply to individual patients that would let their practices qualify for financial incentives under value-based care models.
