Purchaser Value Network

Health care’s legacy fee-for-service payment model encourages the delivery of volume while doing little to incentivize value or quality. Value-based payment models are changing this flawed dynamic to reward health care providers for quality and value and discourage unnecessary care. The Purchaser Value Network pushed to accelerate adoption of high-value health care delivery and payment models through policy advocacy, education and purchaser engagement.

The network:

  • Injected purchaser perspectives and innovative best practices into federal and state policy decision-making
  • Educated employers about value-based purchasing and advocacy opportunities
  • Aligned the three critical purchaser sectors — private employers, states and the federal government — around evidence-based practices
