The study by Quest Diagnostics, now in its third year, gauges perceptions of physicians and health plan executives on the healthcare industry’s journey from fee-for-service to value-based care. The 2018 study suggests that progress has stalled. However, equipping physicians with better tools, aligning physicians and health plan executives around quality measure complexity, and leveraging data and technology investments could help spur adoption of value-based care. Download the study to see the complete findings.
Progress toward value-based care slows over past year
67% of health plan executives and physicians believed the U.S. has a fee-for-service healthcare system versus a value-based care system (27%).
Payers increasingly agree physicians lack tools to succeed under value-based care
57% of health plan executives agreed that physicians do not have the tools to succeed under value-based care, an increase of 12 percentage points from the 2017 study.
Payers and providers require greater alignment
62% of health plan executives said we’ve made progress toward alignment between payers and providers, but only 41% of physicians agreed.
Bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, and blockchain could play role in improving value-based healthcare
More than 60% of health plan executives agreed technologies such as bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, the SMART App Platform, FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources), and blockchain have potential to improve value-based care.
