More than half of consumers are unfamiliar with value-based care, and for the ones who are aware of it, only a quarter can define the healthcare model correctly, a new study from nonprofit health plan EmblemHealth revealed. The payer surveyed 970 consumers online between August 12 and August 22, 2021, and found that there is a critical need for healthcare providers and payers to educate consumers about value-based care.
A team of family medicine researchers conducted an assessment to determine if the implementation of policies and workflows designed to improve quality of care in smaller primary care practices was associated with improved health outcomes for patients with cardiovascular disease. The study also examined whether enhancements in quality improvement capacity are associated with a change in clinic performance.

The Pharmacy Quality Alliance (PQA) continues to forge ahead with our work to develop a set of standard pharmacy performance measures that would be appropriate for use in value-based plan-pharmacy agreements. Over the past 3 years, we have convened and worked with a broad base of industry leaders to identify and vet pharmacy performance measures that meet the needs of pharmacies, payers, and patients—while balancing feasibility and probability for success.

People often confuse health equity with health equality, but it’s vital that healthcare professionals understand the difference. Health equality essentially means giving every person the same thing, while health equity means giving people what they need to reach the best possible outcome. This, of course, is an important distinction, as social determinants of health (SDoH) often dictate the needs of health consumers, particularly among Medicare and Medicaid populations.
