Value Based Reimbursement Research Results in Time for #AHIPInstitute

McKesson Health Solutions has commissioned a new National Research study on Value Based Reimbursement. Here’s a quick summary of some of the findings:

The rapid pace of change in healthcare payment continues unabated, with payers reporting they are 58% along the continuum towards full value-based reimbursement, a 10% leap since 2014. Hospitals aren’t far behind, reporting they’re now 50% along the value continuum, up 4% in the past two years.

Those numbers were a bit shocking to me. It doesn’t feel like we’ve gotten that far in the shift to value based reimbursement. Does it feel like it to you? I knew we were headed that direction, but definitely thought we had just begun. These numbers paint a much different story.

This week I’m excited to attend my first AHIP Institute. I’ll be exploring this shift in all its gory details.

Along with this study and with AHIP starting tomorrow, McKesson has been sharing a number of cartoons about the healthcare industry. Here are a few of them they tweeted out:
