Value-based care is more than just a buzzword; it’s a model that’s transforming the way doctors across all specialties deliver care to their patients.

The value-based care model gives providers an opportunity to commit to a higher standard of care, and in the process, make strides toward health equity and treating the whole patient. Value-based care also benefits providers, allowing them to be reimbursed according to the quality of care they deliver. 

If you’re still operating in a fee-for-service model, you’re missing out on several key benefits for your practice and for the patients you serve. In this article, we’ll explore three of the most significant advantages of value-based care for cardiologists, and explain how you can seamlessly transition your practice to this new model. 

3 Benefits of Transitioning to Value-Based Care for Cardiology

1. Decreased Stress and Improved Lifestyle Outside of Work

Under traditional fee-for-service models, cardiologists are compensated based on the quantity of services they deliver, rather than the quality of care. Not only does this de-incentivize improved patient outcomes, but it also leads to increased stress and overwhelming workloads for the provider. 

By transitioning to a value-based care model, cardiologists can begin to earn compensation based on the thing that matters most: the quality of care they deliver.

2. Increased Time with Patients

Many providers find that the transition to value-based care also frees them up to spend more time with each individual patient. 

The fee-for-service model doesn’t account for time spent on things like counseling or discussing social determinants of health, even though those patient interactions can directly impact care outcomes.

By prioritizing quality over quantity, value-based care makes it easier for providers to invest time in patients, knowing that they’ll be compensated for their efforts. 

3. Evidence-Based Insights and Contracting Support When Partnering with Chamber

The transition to value-based care can feel daunting, but cardiologists don’t need to manage this shift on their own! Chamber provides a free, tech-enabled platform that helps cardiologists succeed at value-based care with innovative technology, care team infrastructure, and contracting support.
