What is Value-Based Purchasing

Value-Based Purchasing is:

  • The actions of purchasers and consumers, to reward excellence in health care delivery.
  • A strategy that purchaser coalitions are using to reform the health care system, community by community.

Rewards can take three dominant forms:

  1. Better reputation
  2. Higher payment
  3. Larger market share

Value-Based Purchasing is based on four pillars:

  1. Standardized Measurement
  2. Transparency and Public Reporting
  3. Payment Reform
  4. Informed Choice
