Prioritizing Patients: A Discussion on Outcomes-Based Care

The rapidly changing health care landscape in the United States is witnessing a transition from a volume-based to a value-based reimbursement structure. In the process, patient care is also changing.

What steps are biopharmaceutical companies, insurers, and providers taking to create a more value-driven health care system? Is there a role that policymakers can or should play to ensure that this approach improves outcomes and what are the implications for patients?

On June, 13, 2017, The Hill convened policymakers, health industry representatives, and patient advocates for a conversation about the impact of outcomes-based care.
