Washington State Health Care Authority seeks provider participation in annual value-based payment survey

From the Washington State Health Care Authority:

The Health Care Authority (HCA) is seeking provider participation in its annual value-based payment survey. The survey will assist HCA in tracking progress toward the statewide goal of paying for value-based care, rather than paying for volume of care. Further, this survey will provide valuable insight into the challenges providers face when considering adopting new payment arrangements and inform HCA’s efforts to support the provider community.

HCA invites a variety of providers across Washington State, including hospitals, health systems, clinics, tribal health care, behavioral health care, and others, to participate. The intent is to collect one response per organization and that administrators, rather than individual clinicians, fill out the survey on behalf of their organization.

The survey is open until August 31.

A similar survey was released to health plans. HCA issues this annual value-based payment (VBP) survey to track progress towards our paying for value goals and to identify barriers impeding desired progress.
