A new report from the Council of Accountable Physician Practice (CAPP) lays out a roadmap for the U.S. health care system’s transition to a value-based payment system.
According to an American Journal of Managed Care report, the primer is the third in a series called “Implementing Health System Improvement.”
“Value-based payment systems hold providers accountable for improving people’s health, not simply doing more procedures,” CAPP Chairman Stephen Parodi said in a statement. “Value-based payment lets us step back and look at patterns of care over time, so that we can change our processes to improve quality and efficiency. It allows us to achieve true innovative solutions for delivering care that is coordinated, cutting edge, convenient, and most importantly, producing even better health outcomes.”
