From Modern Healthcare: There has been a recent uptick in the number of doctors transitioning to value-based care, but 53 percent of physicians still have not made the switch from the traditional fee-for-service model.
“A key barrier for providers is skepticism that the concept of care works compared to the standard fee-for-service scheme. More than 3 in 5 of surveyed physicians said there is a lack of evidence that using performance measures results in better patient care. That’s the same percentage (62%) as two years ago. Another 58% feel that value-based payments will create more work for physicians without patients seeing a benefit. That’s 1 percentage point lower than the 2015 study.”
