VBP Planning Guide

March 2, 2020

This planning guide is designed to help you and your team outline, prioritize and determine an agreed upon roadmap and timeline to prepare for value-based payments (VBPs). However, transformation is not a one-size-fits-all process. Given the complexity of this type of transformation, paired with the accelerated timeline for state payment changes under Medicaid and federal changes to Medicare, your organization will need to identify and implement a change process that suits your organizational needs and culture.

This tool is designed to help your organization identify the manageable objectives and tasks that will build towards the long-term goal of preparedness for VBPs. The guide is designed to prevent your organization from taking on too many changes at once and to promote a systematic approach towards transformation.
