Policy and advocacy play a crucial role in the development, implementation, and success of VBC initiatives. These efforts can help ensure the sustainability and scalability of new initiatives by providing funding mechanisms, addressing regulatory barriers, and encouraging broader adoption of successful models. Successful policies establish mechanisms for accountability and transparency in VBC programs, making it clear how healthcare organizations are measured, evaluated, and rewarded for their performance.
In addition to working with partners who are seeking to build or support their value-based care (VBC) initiatives, PSW is focused on ensuring that the patients and providers on the front lines of healthcare have a voice in the room when new VBC policies are defined.
