"Stalled Progress on the Path to Value-Based Care" is the third annual study from Quest Diagnostics to gauge perceptions of physicians and health plan executives about the nation's journey to value-based healthcare, which focuses on care quality and patient outcomes rather than the quantity of services delivered.
The study analyzes results from a survey of 451 primary care physicians and health plan executives collected earlier this year. It also reveals changes in perceptions over the past two years. According to the study, there is more work to be done to align physicians and health plan executives. 62% of health plan executives said progress has been made over the past year, but only 41% of physicians agreed. The study also suggests physicians need better tools, data access and less complex quality measures to spur adoption.
