Episodes of Care Initiative
As a key value-based care strategy, episodes of care is an alternative payment model that offers incentives to providers to increase coordination and efficiency of care while improving quality and outcomes at lower costs. The National Alliance is collaborating with key stakeholders to help accelerate development of employer adoption of episodes of care across the country.
Our Next Steps
National Alliance member coalitions will continue to assist purchasers in the development, implementation and administration of episodes of care programs with multiple employers active in Florida through the Florida Alliance for Healthcare Value. Other states such as Colorado, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas are also moving forward. To support these efforts, a toolkit is being developed that will provide materials to support the implementation process and educate on standards and carrier assessments.
