The U.S. healthcare system has long required a transformation – from rewarding volume to incentivizing value-based care. Physicians play a critical role in efforts to deliver better value, making them the primary target of strategies to address poor quality and high costs.
Efforts to modify provider behaviors have primarily relied on new reimbursement methods, with mixed success. But a growing body of evidence suggests that non-financial incentives may be an equally, if not more, effective way to incentivize a value-driven approach to care. This webinar will explore non-financial incentives’ ability to deliver better value by increasing use of high-value services, decreasing use of low-value services and decreasing excess prices.
