Value-based Health Care Explalined

From EBA

Sam Ho, the chief medical officer at UnitedHealthcare, describes value-based care arrangements in an EBA article.

Under value-based care arrangements, healthcare providers are paid for achieving certain quality outcomes and demonstrating that they’re improving people’s health, rather than getting paid solely for the number of services they provide to patients.

 In short, value-based care puts the patient at the center of the healthcare experience. It emphasizes the importance of keeping people healthy and rewards physicians for coordinating care.
