It was a lively, solution focused discussion in which we covered a range of topics. Here are some key takeaways:
- Expect a continued move towards value-based care in the behavioral health space. Government and commercial insurers will continue to pivot away from the traditional fee-for-service model.
- If providers are going to remain viable in the coming years, they will have to have a way to verify outcomes via a third party source.
- Establishing broad consensus on effective outcomes is one of the more challenging tasks for payers and providers across the behavioral health spectrum.
- Providers who are tracking outcomes in a multitude of domains will be at an advantage in negotiating value-based care deals as well as better in-network rates.
- Third party outcome data will promote health equity by offering verified results as it relates to specific demographic groups in the United States
- Identifying culturally appropriate recovery resources will improve population health at scale.
