Deneen Vojta, MD, UnitedHealth Group, says that the healthcare landscape is shifting to delivery models that focus on greater value-based care, such as accountable care models. She suggests that providers who work in mostly fee-for-service environments are likely to face a variety of hard decisions and business challenges as they transition to models that are fee-for-value.

Dr Vojta highlights the triple aim—reducing costs, improving quality, and improving access to care—as an essential component to the successful adaptation of value-based care.

“As we move from fee-for-service to fee-for-value, it really is to get to the triple aim. We must reduce cost in this country, we much improve care, and we must improve access. And we are not doing a great job. And as we start thinking about these conversations, they really are, they’re the patients, they're the payers and they’re the providers, and probably in the order of patients, providers and payers,” says Dr Vojta “And we each will need tools to manage this new world, but a bit part of that is again going to be the patients.”
