New Value-Based Payment Assessment Tool

The shift from volume-based to value-based payment (VBP) requires primary care providers, including Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), and behavioral health providers to make fundamental changes to the delivery of care, operations, and financial management.

Our new web-based, self-assessment will help evaluate your readiness across multiple domains and identify critical care delivery, financial, and operational elements that will help you become ready to succeed under existing and emerging value-based payment models. We offer two versions of the tool: one for primary care providers and one for behavioral health providers.

There are five primary components of the assessment:

  • Organizational Readiness
  • Partnership Readiness
  • Care Delivery and Health Information Technology/Health Information Exchange Readiness
  • Financial and Operational Readiness
  • Organizational Concerns

To help ensure that the assessment accurately reflects your readiness, we recommend that the assessment be completed as a team—engaging leaders and staff that understand the status of your care delivery, financial, and operational capabilities and systems. The survey takes approximately four hours for a team to complete.

The tool is designed to assess the readiness of individual providers or groups of providers working together. Upon completing the assessment, each organization receives a custom report summarizing the results and highlighting core gaps in readiness and implementation priorities as well as a one-hour call with senior HMA and CohnReznick experts to help interpret the results and explore readiness strategies. Those completing the survey as part of a group of providers also receive a comparative summary of responses for all providers in the cohort.

There is a one-time fee of $2,500. Discounts are available for groups of providers.
