HFMA Survey: Value-Based Payment Readiness

Earlier this year the Healthcare Financial Management Association surveying a sampling of senior financial executives in hospitals and health systems to learn more about healthcare’s readiness for value-based care. The survey probed for the current state of readiness, projected needs, anticipated gaps and penetration, the financial impact to date of their efforts, and perceptions on enabling risk-based contracting.

Here are some of the key findings:

  • Over half of respondents said their system had achieved a positive return on investment from a value-based program.
  • Yet nearly 40% don’t feel their organization has the needed capabilities to succeed within 3 years in risk-based value arrangements when if comes to interoperability, business intelligence, real-time data access, and effective chronic care management.
  • Such gaps are of concern when respondents expect 30-70% of their payments will include value-based mechanisms with 3 years.
  • Competencies involving data analytics ranked highest among respondents in the likelihood of enabling value-based payment success.
