The role of appropriateness of care measures in value-based care models

Original Air Date: April 14, 2022

U.S. health care spending grew 9.7 percent in 2020, reaching $4.1 trillion or $12,530 per person.1 Meanwhile, the National Academy of Medicine estimates the cost of inappropriate/low-value care to be $765 billion per year.2

What do we understand about high-value care and low-value care? Is all high-quality care appropriate? How is appropriateness of care defined and measured, and why is a consistent approach to doing so critical to the success of value-based care arrangements?

Anyone accountable for population health management, value-based payment/benefit programs, and the judicial use of organizational resources — employers, providers, health system leaders, accountable care executives — will find this conversation on appropriateness of care between Signify Health’s Francois de Brantes and Julie Scherer, Chief Data Scientist, Motive Practicing Wisely.
