Advancing commercial risk will be a critical catalyst of progress
Risk-based payment models are progressing slowly but steadily for Medicare and Medicaid. The same can’t be said for commercial contracts, where it’s harder to find alignment between plans, providers, and employers on compressed timelines. But commercial risk is ultimately what will tip the industry toward value-based care or keep us stuck in a world of hybrid incentives.
Advisory Board has been researching whether commercial risk is possible. (Spoiler alert: We believe it is.) To understand the path forward, we’ve collaborated with experts from around the industry and analyzed a national database of commercial claims. Explore our work below to learn how you can help push the industry toward a new cost and quality standard.
