Modern Healthcare

Providers and private payers have scant experience sharing financial risk for patient populations in accountable care models of healthcare delivery and payment, according to a survey of the landscape led by Suzanne Delbanco, executive director of Catalyst for Payment Reform. The authors of the paper, published by the Commonwealth Fund, identified eight models with a risk-sharing component, a full continuum of patient services and quality incentives. Catalyst for Payment Reform is a coalition of corporations and other large healthcare purchasers.
