Value-Based Reimbursement Structures

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) announces the July 3 issue of the Health Care Innovations Exchange (http://www.innovations.ahrq.gov).

  • The featured Innovations describe three programs that implemented value-based reimbursement policies at the State level. One program offered health plans a capitated fee to deliver health care and social services to Medicare/Medicaid dual eligibles, a second adjusted individual hospital payment rates based on specific performance metrics, and a third program rewarded individual hospitals for reducing hospital-acquired conditions.
  • The featured QualityTools provide resources that help health care administrators and providers prepare for performance measurement and reporting to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, as well as a toolkit that offers guidance for implementing health care-associated infection prevention programs.
  • To access more innovation profiles and tools related to value-based reimbursement on the Innovations Exchange Web site, go to http://www.innovations.ahrq.gov/innovations_qualitytools.aspx?search=value-based.
