Value Based Purchasing Agreement

Performance Measures In today`s health environment, family physicians face an unprecedented number of performance criteria demanded by different payers. The AAFP believes that harmonization of measures among payers is essential to the success of value-based models, since VBP incentives are linked to the performance of the specific quality measures described by each payer. In addition, family physicians need to understand what is being measured and how these measures are used to determine performance and payment. You will find appropriate performance criteria in the AAFP `performance criteria` directive. 8.

We were only able to find information on the types of repositories used for one-third of VBP programs in our environmental scan. There was no publicly available information on the repositories used by bundled payment programs. Among P4P programs, the most common benchmark was only an absolute threshold, followed by relative thresholds that can be based on peer performance in the market, state or national level. Other programs, such as the CMS VBP hospital program, have two ways to get incentives: reach an absolute threshold or improve over time. This article summarizes current knowledge about BPVs based on a review of published literature, a review of publicly available literature from BPV programs, and discussions with an expert panel of VBP sponsors, health care providers and health systems, as well as academic researchers with experts in the evaluation of BPV.

Three types of VBP models were at the centre of the review: (1) performance payment programs, (2) responsible care organizations and (3) bundled payment programs. The authors report on the goals of the VBP program and what success is; Evidence of the impact of these programs Factors that characterize suppliers of high-performing and high-performing suppliers in VBP programs; The measures, incentive structures and benchmarks used by PNP programmes; Evidence of ripple effects and unintended consequences and gaps in the knowledge base. Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) refers to a wide range of results-based payment strategies, which combine financial incentives with supplier performance with a number of defined ratios.
