Value-Based Payment (VBP) is the practice of paying health care organizations for receiving quality of services provided rather than volume of patients seen. NYS DOH’s goal is to shift almost entirely from volume-based payment to outcome-based payments by 2020.

Introduction to VBP

NQP has created an “Introduction to Value-Based Payment” educational video to help partners better prepare for the transition from volume-based to value-based payment models.

Topics include:

  • Definition of value-based payment (VBP)
  • The critical need for VBP
  • Implementation
  • VBP approaches: Shared Savings; Bundles; Shared Risk; Global Capitation
  • Various levels of VBP available to providers
  • Misconceptions
