Our View of the Market

Value-based payment continues to grow.

Healthcare has reached a tipping point in the adoption of value-based relationships.



healthcare benefits will feature value-based incentive contracts by 2021.



are targeted for quality- and value-payment models by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.



have active Medicaid ACO, Delivery System Incentive or other payment reform models in place.


Strategy and existing processes are not enough.

Most healthcare payers know they must transition to value-based payment, yet they’re challenged by fee-for-service transaction infrastructures and outdated analytic capabilities. Providers, too, are willing to enter into value-based programs but want transparency and better information to manage their contracts. Meanwhile, the employer and government purchasers demand better payment strategies and want evidence of program effectiveness.

Marketplace uncertainty is a major issue.

A volatile policy landscape creates unpredictability in healthcare. But value-based payment is here to stay, and payers and providers must be ready to adapt to changes in both national and local markets.
