American Heart Association’s Call to Action for Payment and Delivery System Reform

Published: July 10, 2017

  • A transformation of healthcare provider payment is currently underway, moving from fee-for-service (FFS) to value-based payments, or from paying for the volume to paying for “value.”
  • Indications by healthcare payers, both private and public, are that they will use risk-based payment arrangements to drive towards improved patient outcomes at reduced costs.
  • This Call to Action offers support and direction for further involvement by the association in payment and delivery system reform efforts.
