The Health Care Authority (HCA) is encouraging payers and providers to complete its survey on value based payments, “Paying for Value Survey: Measuring Health Care Payment and Delivery System Transformation in Washington State.” The survey will track movement towards value-based payment adoption, barriers to adoption, and implementation of accountable health care strategies. HCA has a goal that 80 percent of state-financed health care and 50 percent of the commercial market will be paid through value-based payments by 2019.
Survey responses are due by Thursday, May 12, 2016. The survey and response templates for payers and providers can be found on the Healthier Washington Paying for Value web page. Questions and submissions should be sent to P4Vsurvey@hca.wa.gov. (Andrew Busz, email@example.com)
