Abstract or Introduction
This article majorly focusses on value-based healthcare delivery model and describes what value-based delivery model means and entails and goes further to explain in details the four types of value-based delivery model, which are Accountable Care Organization (ACO), Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), Pay for Performance (P4P) and Bundled Payments.
Value-based healthcare delivery model is a solution that is emerging and it aims at addressing the healthcare costs that keep on rising and to make it cheaper and easier for people to find the care they need. In this model, hospitals and their doctors get payments for keeping people healthy and for ensuring the health of chronic diseases patients gets to improve in an evidence-based approach and a cost effective manner. The article further explains that this value-based model is designed around and for patients, who in the end benefit from a team concerned with coordination of their health and give the correct information to help them get the right care across our healthcare system. All individual patient needs are met by the medical care teams whether they be chronic, acute or preventive. The article concludes that whatever the value-based model you choose, all of them aim at delivering better health in a more affordable way. Moreover, the way a value-based care will look depends on what approach the doctors and healthcare systems take in its implementation. Some of the models are very visible while others are invisible and therefore you may get care under one of these models and never even know that you have. I therefore find this article very descriptive on my topic of interest and is gives very vital information that I need for my research paper.
