All Together Now: Applying the Lessons of FFS to Streamline Adoption of Value-based Payments
Today, as elements of value-based payment are being implemented by a growing number of stakeholders, CAQH CORE sees opportunities to strengthen the operational processes and systems supporting it. We conducted an 18-month study to examine value-based payment operational processes and to identify opportunity areas that, if improved, would streamline implementation of value-based payment. This presentation will detail the results of this study – a report proposing five opportunity areas associated with value-based payment including data harmonization, interoperability, patient risk stratification, provider attribution and quality measurement. By collaborating now, before proprietary systems and processes become entrenched in value-based payment operations, CAQH CORE hopes to energize an effort to ease value-based payment operational inefficiencies.
