The Quality Payment Program (QPP) and other forms of value-based payment are not just new ways to pay for health care. Value-based care and payment involve a fundamental shift in the way health care organizations do business. With this level of business risk and opportunity, health care organizations and leaders need more tailored, strategic guidance and individualized consultation to navigate successfully the move to value.
Kentucky REC offers an additional level of support to health care organizations and leaders that will help them assess the current opportunities under the QPP as well as other payment models, identify gaps in critical capabilities and develop an individualized plan to master the move to value-based care. Individualized assistance includes: in-person and remote education, in-depth gap analysis and action plan, ongoing support for improvement, and assistance with registration, data submission and attestation.
