Value-Based Care Accreditation
Value-Based Care (VBC) accreditation provides proof that a medical services provider offers VALUE beyond the care provided and/or medical equipment delivered. Value includes the extra service and follow-up required to assure that the patients broader health needs are considered and that the intended outcome for the patient is met. Value includes a focus on cost management and developing cost effective care plans. Value includes accountability for tracking outcomes and reporting on results.
VBC accreditation requires
- Collaborative, community-based support (clinical and coaching) to address the needs of patients.
- Active evaluation of patient progress and acting as the eyes and ears in the community to connect patients to support systems.
- Disease management to address overall physical, social, and mental health of the population.
VBC accredited providers support the quadruple aim of strong, effective health systems
- Improve patient experience (increased satisfaction- HCAPS;
- Better health outcomes (improve HEDIS, STAR metrics – ie reduce hospitalizations and ED visits);
- Lower total cost of care (decrease expensive acute care costs and balance proactive care);
- Improve provider and staff experience
