Sound strategies and a disciplined approach lead to competitive strength and financial viability.
For 2016, CMS indicated their goal for 30% of Medicare payments to be made in alternative payment models (non-fee-for-service architecture). The percentage would increase to 50% by the end of 2018. CMS is also targeting 90% of Medicare fee-for-service payments to be in certain value-based categories by 2018. With the November 2016 elections and the shifts in Executive Office and Legislative control, what is clear is that the future of healthcare payments to providers and the costs to beneficiaries is unclear.
In light of the new healthcare policy ambiguity, 2017 will continue to require providers' efforts that reduce costs, improve and demonstrate quality, and implement organizational capabilities to successfully negotiate and manage an increasingly greater proportion of value oriented (risk) contracts. Providers’ success in establishing a strong value position will require bold, strategic, well calculated decisions.
