Centering Healthcare Institute

In, “Aligning Value-Based Payment with the CenteringPregnancy Group Prenatal Care Model: Strategies to Sustain a Successful Model of Prenatal Care,” HMA authors Diana Rodin, MPH, and Margaret Kirkegaard, MD, MPH, review new opportunities to promote improved outcomes and lower costs in maternity care though value-based payment strategies. Prepared for the Centering Healthcare Institute, it demonstrates specifically how CenteringPregnancy can be an effective, financially sustainable model of maternity care, that meets the goals of value-based payment contracts.

The report examines:

  • Value-based payment in Medicaid maternity care
  • Alternating payment models in maternity care across states
  • CenteringPregnancy as a model of prenatal group care – outcomes, evidence, cost and savings
  • CenteringPregnancy alignment with value-based payment framework
