Assessing Value-Based Payment's Impact on the Total Costs of Care


Payers, providers, and other health care organizations are moving away from fee-for-service and toward value-based payment (VBP). Aside from short-term studies in individual markets, however, there has been little research into whether these alternative reimbursement models have resulted in lower overall health care costs. This project, to be conducted by Leavitt Partners, an organization recognized for its VBP-tracking capabilities, will examine the impact of VBP on health care markets across the country. The study has four aims: 1) identify market factors that correlate with a more rapid transition to VBP; 2) determine the impact of VBP models on the total cost of care within the markets; 3) better understand how different types of health care organizations employing VBP are responding to market factors; and 4) determine whether similar factors in different markets shape similar organizational responses in developing the competencies necessary to engage in VBP.
