Does Value-Based Care Work?
I think "value-based" does work. Let's face it, it has to. The challenges are more around the journey than the destination. The emerging obstacles are around scaling and accelerating the maturing process at a local level. Outstanding issues persist around; attribution, defining the right metrics and value, the influence of SDOH, and the importance of behaviors - for both consumers and providers, in matching them to the right next best action. Details matter and while the hype behind value-based has been long heard I think the realities, the underlying details and the related learnings at scale, have just begun.
