A study commissioned by Quest Diagnostics suggests the shift toward value-based care has not only stalled, but could have potentially take a step back, Healthcare Informatics reports.
The study of 451 physicians and health plan executives aimed to glean how doctors and health plan executives see the nation’s transition to value-based strategies.
Quest Diagnostics’ third annual study, titled “Stalled Progress on the Path to Value-Based Care,” found that:
- Physicians and health plan officials find little progress has been made toward a more value-based care system;
- Most health plan officials say physicians are lacking the tools necessary for success in a value-based model;
- Physicians and health plan executives have less confidence that physicians possess enough information about their patients.
