How a value-based care payment model could reshape emerging healthtech

US healthcare providers are traditionally paid for the services they render, creating a system that values the quantity of service above all else. Soaring costs and recent Medicare changes could accelerate the adoption of value-based care, fundamentally shifting the model.VBC directly links earnings to care quality and patient outcomes, emphasizing preventive care and creating an incentive to keep costs low. Our new analyst note explores the potential impact of VBC on emerging tech and healthcare as a whole. Highlights include:
  • Providers will increasingly adopt cutting-edge technology, including analytics, AI and machine learning, and next-generation diagnostics.
  • Medicare will be the primary driver of value-based care models, boosting investment in tech to treat conditions common among Medicare patients.
  • HIPAA-compliant care management platforms are likely to grow, as they help providers collaborate efficiently on treatments while reducing costs.
