ESTERO, FLA. – August 1, 2012 – Employers are invited to participate in the third annual survey of the Center for Health Value Innovation, a research tool aimed at pinpointing current innovations and results in health benefit and outcomes-based design.
“In past iterations of this survey, we’ve found a number of useful results that have helped employers better understand how to target their health care dollars,” explained Cyndy Nayer, president of the Center.
“In order to get quality results, we want to invite a wide variety of businesses to take the survey, with a promise that their organizations will not be individually identified and that no personal health information is requested,” Nayer continued.
Employers of all sizes, including nonprofit and government agencies, are invited to take the survey today at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/value-based. Results will be gathered through Sept. 15, 2012. Those who take the survey will get a complimentary PDF copy of the results.
The Center has been unique in its vision for health benefit designs focused on outcomes. In tracking this link and the development of more sophisticated value-based systems over the past five years, the CHVI survey has been instrumental in defining outcomes-based contracting.
Outcomes-based contracting is a growing trend that aligns all stakeholders (health plans, employers, clinicians, consumers, patients) to engage patients in their health, hold providers accountable for health improvement, and create a predictable cost trend for organizations and communities. Previous iterations of this survey have shown the emergence of outcomes-based contracts and their focus on systemic incentives and accountability.
Special areas targeted in this year’s survey include outcomes-based contracts in special situations (for example, cancer care); direct contracting with delivery systems; and telehealth.
