Primary care doctors: The ‘quarterbacks’ in a value-based care playbook
value-based care, an alternative health care model in which doctors are paid based on the health outcomes of their patients, begins with the primary care physician.
Approximately one in 20 primary care office visits results in a specialist referral, with the largest share (45%) made to surgical specialists. Encouraging informed referrals to specialists who demonstrate lower costs and better outcomes can have a significant impact on value-based care program costs — in some cases, resulting in millions of dollars of annual savings.
