Better health. Better care. Lower costs.

Value-based care is improving quality and health

Placing greater emphasis on value is proving successful for everyone who touches the health care system and all types of plan sponsors, from private employers to state and federal programs. That’s because Value-based Care models focus on quality and using incentives to reward better healthbetter care and lower costs. This continues to drive important improvements in how payers and care providers work together to support people’s care.
