The number of payments tied to value-based models continues to grow, but there’s more work to be done to drive providers to take on risk, according to a new report. The Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network released its latest progress report on the uptake of alternative payment models at its LAN Summit on Monday and found that 34% of payments in 2017 were tied to APMs that either was built on fee-for-service or use a population health-based approach. Last year, 41% of payments were tied to a fee-for-service model with no links to quality or value, and 23% were tied to fee-for-service models that do monitor quality and value.
