In this episode, Dr. James will discuss the findings of their third annual survey on the shift towards value-based care.
Over two-thirds of physicians feel we are still in a fee-for-service environment today. Physicians are being overwhelmed by the flood of data available to them. Many physicians believe they do not have the tools or the data to succeed in a value-based contracting environment. The lack of tools for making the data actionable is a key challenge in driving this shift.
As CMS and FDA gets more consumer-centric and tries to speed up technology and care models to make it easier for physicians to take care of patients, consumerism will continue to drive the shift towards value-based care. Listen to the podcast to know more.
