The Intersection of FFS and VBC Medicine: Conclusion

The Intersection of FFS and VBC Medicine: Conclusion

by Jonathan Hart, MD MBA

As we’ve seen over these past few weeks in our exploration of the intersection of FFS and VBC in the PCP office, the practical application of VBC principles does not need to be an enigma for FFS-heavy practices. You can and, in truth, need to practice in both worlds – FFS and VBC. In fact, VBC concepts applied to non-VBC circumstances can be a boost to FFS healthcare delivery in both revenue and in their transition to practices that create value rather than just creating claims.

We’ve been looking at the intersection of fee-for-service (FFS) and value-based care healthcare delivery models within a primary care (PCP) office/ Annual Wellness Visits (AWV) and HEDIS measures tend to get most of the attention in discussions of VBC in a PCP office, but they have an often-forgotten cousin that can have at least the same impact on both positive patient outcome and shared savings revenue – Advanced Care Planning (ACP).

In the past couple of blog entries, we’ve been exploring the intersections of the fee-for-service (FFS) and value-based care (VBC) healthcare delivery models in the physician’s office. Last time, annual wellness and preventive services were discussed. In this entry we’ll look at how closure of HEDIS measures not only helps the patient but benefits the practice, regardless of where you stand on the FFS-to-VBC continuum.

As the introduction of this series explained, there are activities a physician or provider can perform in the office that benefit the patient and the practice regardless of one’s stance in fee-for-service (FFS) or value-based care (VBC) practice models. This intersection carries even more importance when one considers that, even in many successful VBC organizations, physician compensation still lags in the FFS and production world. The activities to be discussed can motivate the front-line doc from a production perspective while benefiting the organization from a VBC perspective.
