On December 6, 2017, the Catalyst Center and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) co-hosted a webinar on state-based innovations that support value-based purchasing (VBP) for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). Presentations from the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP), and the state Title V programs in Oregon and Colorado helped to define the role of Title V programs in relation to value-based purchasing arrangements, discussed specific program examples and shared lessons learned. A YouTube video of the webinar, as well as the slides, are available below.
For further learning about VBP we have links to related reading material from the Catalyst Center:
- The Catalyst Center and the AAP produced a special supplement to Pediatrics on VBP and value-based insurance design (VBID) and their potential implications for CYSHCN. Read the supplement, available free of charge.
- The Catalyst Center produced A Primer On Value-Based Strategies For Improving Financing Of Care For Children And Youth With Special Health Care Needs, which focuses on opportunities to increase value in spending on health services for CYSHCN through select alternative payment mechanisms and delivery innovations. It also highlights potential roles for Title V and family leaders in these efforts.
- The Affordable Care Act And Value-Based Purchasing: What’s At Stake For Children With Medical Complexity? is a Catalyst Center product which examines the VBP strategies of (1) pay-for-performance (P4P); (2) accountable care organizations (ACOs), and (3) bundled payments. These strategies are geared towards achieving value by reducing costs while improving quality based on a predetermined set of performance standards.
