Docs taking on full risk in value-based care models still years away
Modern Healthcare

The healthcare industry is likely still several years away from assuming full risk in value-based payment models, according to a new survey.

A market in which the majority of value-based relationships include both upside and downside shared risk is three to five years off, according to nearly 40% of 185 healthcare executives surveyed by the HealthCare Executive Group and Change Healthcare. About 17% said it will take five or more years and 6% said it will never happen. These new payment programs seem perpetually stuck in a state of delay, researchers said.
