Shift from
Volume to Value

Health plans and providers are moving beyond analytics-driven pilots to full-scale operational value-based reimbursement (VBR) programs. Critical to this shift, is the alignment of financial and clinical data, administrative and contract automation, as well as transparency to control costs.

35% of all reimbursement will be value-based in the next 36 months1

MSSP programs to grow to 7.2 million lives in 20152

Over 50% of VBR contracts in the next 36 months will have downside risk3

Our goal is to have 85% of all Medicare fee-for-service payments tied to quality or value by 2016, and 90% by 2018.
