The American healthcare system is transforming from a volume-based reimbursement model to a model focused on the value of care provided. For all clinicians, the ability to provide high quality care resulting in improved patient outcomes is crucial to future reimbursement. In an effort to encourage clinicians to move towards value-based care, legislation has recently been implemented that rewards those who can demonstrate they provide quality care. This determination is based upon patient outcomes. Clinicians who are identified as providing high-value care are then rewarded through reimbursement for services provided.
The Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPi) is a federal program that provides clinicians with resources to equip them to thrive in this value-based reimbursement system. The Compass Practice Transformation Network (PTN) is executing TCPi locally. Through participation in TCPi, Compass PTN participants have advanced through five transformation stages that include the introduction of clinic-level performance improvement initiatives and the utilization of data to drive change. These efforts have ultimately improved the care delivery system. Practices have also engaged patients and communities as partners to improve both quality and patient safety.
As an active “learning community,” local Compass PTN participants will continue to develop an understanding of the value-based reimbursement system and further apply the work they have accomplished through participation in Compass PTN. The learning community will spread best practices and lessons learned to enable participants to thrive in the new value-based reimbursement world.
