Quality Performance

The value-based reimbursement model requires performance on several key areas, quality, resource use, clinical practice improvement activities, and use of an EHR.

Why ‘Value-Based’?

Value is important in the health care system. Insurance payers and states are increasingly rewarding practitioners who provide improved patient care and cost savings. The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model of care – one in which care is centrally coordinated and tracked by one primary care provider – has become the standard by which primary care can achieve better patient care and lower costs.
