Value-Based Care

Over the past several years, Medicare and commercial payers have moved toward value-based payment, shifting from payment solely based on the volume of care, such as traditional fee-for-service, to payment more closely related to outcomes of care. Value-based payment models use measures of quality and cost to determine payment for providers. Ensuring high quality of care while controlling cost is key to success in these models. Physical therapists need to be able to use quality measures to articulate the value they bring to the health care system, given that in the near future payment for services will depend on quality-measure performance.
