Survey: 1 in 3 Family Physicians Pursuing Value-based Payment

Getting family physicians ready for a health care delivery system that revolves around value-based payment is a key priority for the AAFP. 

It's a priority for many family physicians, too, according to a survey in which one-third of respondents said they are already pursuing such models. The Academy -- along with health insurer Humana -- hosted a congressional briefing on Dec. 1 in Washington to highlight findings from the survey.

The one-hour event was centered on learnings from a value-based payment readiness survey in which 626 family physicians participated earlier this year. The survey was expressly designed to evaluate how well-prepared America's family physicians are when it comes to implementing value-based payment models.

The AAFP and Humana partnered on the survey project, with Humana providing funding and the Academy handling survey distribution, data collection and analysis.
