Value-Based Care in 2023: The Future of Healthcare Delivery
According to the Medscape’s “Physician Compensation Report 2022”, fifteen percent of physicians participate in value-based payment models.
In 2023, value-based care is expected to continue to grow and evolve as healthcare providers, payers, and policymakers seek to improve patient outcomes and contain costs.
Value-based care is vital to providing better care for individuals and improved health for communities at a reduced cost and is necessary to tackling the difficulties the healthcare market faces.
What are the key trends that will shape value-based care in 2023?
In 2023, health care providers are expected to continue to move away from traditional service fees and adopt alternative payment models, such as bundled payments, capitation, and shared savings arrangements. These models encourage providers to provide high-quality, cost-effective services by linking payments to outcomes and results.
Value-based care will also be putting more emphasis on population health management. The management of population health is projected to receive more attention from healthcare practitioners in 2023, who will use data analytics and other tools to pinpoint and cater to the medical needs of particular patient groups.
Role of Patient Engagement in Value-Based Care
Patient engagement is a key to success in value-based care, as engaged patients are more likely to adhere to treatment plans and achieve better health outcomes.
In 2023, healthcare providers are expected to continue to invest in tools and technologies that enhance patient engagement, such as telehealth, mobile apps, and patient portals.
Improving Value-Based Care with Nurse Triage
Nurse triage ensures that patients have quick access to care advice 24/7 and that physicians receive documentation of the nurse triage encounters. Triage nurses can also contact physicians for more complex situations for their decision on outcomes.
Here are some unique ways AccessNurse supports value-based care:
- Our nurse triage services are customized to meet provider standards of care through the implementation of customized provider directives that are embedded in our system.
- AccessNurse provides NurseLine, our proprietary web-based enhancement that allows patients to access a triage nurse from the patient portal.
