As the healthcare industry moves increasingly toward a value-based system of healthcare delivery and reimbursement, a growing number of physician practices are delivering care in a more systemized way, according to a new infographic by Bain & Company.
The infographic illustrates this change—with 75 percent of physicians using electronic medical records, up from just 29 percent two years ago and 81 percent of practices using treatment protocols, up from 34 percent two years ago.
The infographic also examines the number of practices using metrics, participating in risk-based contracts and the change in management of physician practices.
CMS's ambitious agenda for moving Medicare into alternative payment models is driving the U.S. healthcare system toward greater value-based purchasing at a furious rate. Private payors also have pledged to continue to shift payments away from fee for service and into alternative payment models such as accountable care organizations (ACOs). Fortunately, many healthcare organizations are already exploring value-based payments—often a single innovation at a time—testing models that reward providers for meeting Triple Aim goals of improving patient experience and population health while reducing healthcare's per capita cost.

Lincoln ACO's deep dive into data analytics to identify and manage the care of high-risk, high-cost 'VIP' patients to 'beat the benchmark' to WellPoint's engagement of specialists in care coordination.
