The way healthcare providers get paid is changing. A combination of value-based reimbursement and direct payment models is slowly replacing fee-for-service models. To thrive in this dynamic market, physicians must look at the options, evaluate their patient panel and create a practice that can meet changing payer and patient demands.
The first step is being open to change. The majority of physicians say they do not want to close or sell their practices, and recent studies indicate many providers are already open to alternate payment models.
