After years of uneven adoption, value-based care (VBC) is gaining momentum as providers and payers seek to improve patient outcomes while gaining control of runaway healthcare spending in the U.S. An overwhelming 94% of health system executives expect value-based contracts to continue growing in coming years. Making VBC work, however, requires the ability of healthcare stakeholders to reimburse all participants in a VBC network for their services. And therein lies the challenge.
Community health centers (CHCs) are respected, trusted agencies within the health care delivery sector and civic society as a whole; they are well situated to be responsive and accountable to the needs and values of their communities. Beyond health services, they can be one of multiple institutions within a community where social forces gather to build social cohesion that can, in turn, promote community empowerment.

The Pittsburgh-based CCM’s “Top of Mind for Top Health Systems 2022” research report examines patient access solutions and strategies being considered and deployed at health systems to deliver a more consumer-friendly approach to care.
