Value-Based Care

Value-Based Care is simply the idea of improving quality and outcomes for patients. Rather than the fee for service model, which is the more people you see, the more money you make. Reaching a value-based goal is based on a set of changes in the ways a patient receives care.

It’s making healthcare proactive instead of reactive, preventing problems before they start. Overall wellness, quality of care, and preventive screenings all are key to bringing about better healthcare outcomes.

The goal of value-based care is to standardize healthcare processes through best practices, as in any business. Mining of data and evidence can determine which processes work and which don’t. This forms a foundational “care pathway” to help get best results for patients.

Wellness and prevention are also stressed in value-based care. Prevention of health (through quitting smoking, dietary and lifestyle changes, exercise, etc.) reduces the need for expensive tests, procedures, and medications.
