Value-based health care is around the corner — or are we supposed to be already living it? The uncertainly in the health care world today has caused many healthcare organizations to slow or stall their efforts to prepare for risk-based medicine.
A Deloitte survey found more than 80 percent of physicians still received compensation under fee-for-service models or salary arrangements as of 2016. In comparison, physician participation in value-based payment models only increased 5 percent in 2016 from the year prior.
During an executive roundtable discussion at the Becker’s Hospital Review 6th Annual CEO + CFO Roundtable in Chicago on November 14, 2017, industry leaders identified five strategies they’re implementing to strengthen their organization’s financial operations to better position them for value-based care. We’ll list them here, but you’ll want to visit the Hospital CFO Report for more details:
1. Centralize billing systems.
2. Foster strong payer relationships.
3. Understand how you’re paid and how you collect.
4. Create a single, integrated budget.
5. Use technology to streamline the process.
