Value-based care benefits physicians and patients, Humana report says

Value-based care can lower costs and contribute to the health of Medicare Advantage members, according to the 10th annual "Value-Based Care Report" released Nov. 15 from Humana.

The report found that Medicare Advantage patients receiving care under value-based arrangements were more likely to receive preventive care and experience fewer hospitalizations. The report also found that the same patients were more likely to spend more time with their primary care physician.

Meanwhile, physicians working under the value-based model were found to be empowered and in a better position to coordinate care under the model, which reimburses clinicians for the quality of care they provide, allowing for a stronger focus on preventive care and better patient health outcomes.
