‘Not a Fluff Piece’: AHIP, AMA, NAACOS Offer Actionable Valued-Based Care Tips

Payers and providers are increasingly adopting value-based care, although they need to continue to invest in the models and collaborate to make them work, according to a report released on April 10 by AHIP, the American Medical Association (AMA) and the National Association of Accountable Care Organizations (NAACOS). The 74-page report identified best practices for developing payment arrangements for value-based care, including establishing clearly defined contract terms and considering ways to incentivize payers and providers to participate and move away from fee-for-service arrangements.

“Our goal here — AMA, AHIP and NAACOS — is to identify these real world best practices, get those in the hands of health plans, of physicians and clinicians and the teams in general, the VBC entities, so that they can really absorb this information [and] take action based on it related to their own participation in these models, so that we can really scale this nationwide,” Danielle Lloyd, AHIP’s senior vice president of private market innovations and quality initiatives, said during an April 12 panel discussion at the NAACOS Spring 2024 conference in Baltimore.
