Value-Based Payment (VBP)

Payment structures linked to quality and outcomes, which reward both efficiency and effectiveness.  The overall goals of VBP programs are to (1) provide better care to individuals, (2) improve the overall health of a population, and (3) reduce healthcare costs.  Examples include pay-for-performance programs that reward improvements in quality metrics and bundled payment methods, which pay providers based on an episode of care rather than for individual services provided.
