The Value Proposition: Evaluating the Sustainability of Value-Based Care. Almost seven years since the introduction of healthcare reform, a shift away from fee-for-service towards value-based care has been promoted and even required through new regulation. While many attempts to implement these new models have given hope to providing high quality care at a low cost, many have struggled to achieve a sustainable financial return. This year’s Business of Healthcare Conference seeks to examine what has and has not worked in the implementation of value-based care and how the trend towards such models will continue.
