Value-based reimbursement continues to lag behind fee-for-service — 3 survey insights

Organizations generate most of their revenue from fee-for-service payments despite regulations and guidelines aimed at driving value-based reimbursement, according to the NEJM Catalyst Insights Council Survey.

The survey comprised responses from 552 executive, clinical leader and clinician members of the NEJM Catalyst Insights Council.

Here's what you should know:

1. On average, 75 percent of organizations' revenue comes from fee-for-service reimbursement, respondents indicated. Only 25 percent comes from value-based reimbursement.

2. The revenue breakdown indicates the healthcare industry is "exercising an abundance of caution" in the transition to value-based reimbursement, surveyors concluded.

3. While 66 percent of executives and 64 percent of clinical leaders were able to identify where their organization's revenue comes from, only 50 percent of clinicians knew that information.
