Advancing Hospital Value-based Payment Policy Reform

The HQC is committed to offering legislative proposals to modify and improve hospital value-based payment policy. In the HQC Hospital Value White Paper, the coalition supports the following:

1. Consolidate and reform existing penalty-only programs into an improved Hospital Value-Based Purchasing Program, offering incentives and rewards for high performance

2. Improve efficiency as a unit of value by modifying the improved Hospital Value-Based Purchasing program to weigh measures of cost and quality equally

3. Advance value-based care by increasing the amount of payment tied to hospital performance

4. Eliminate overlap with quality measures between separate hospital programs

5. Provide opportunities for developing and expanding hospital Alternative Payment Models
