This article, written by partners Patrick J. Dugan and Mark J. Botti, was published in the November 2015 edition of Connections by the American Health Lawyers Association. It explains that value-based reimbursement has the potential to transform healthcare delivery for the better, simultaneously reducing overall costs and improving efficiency and quality. Yet to be truly effective, real commitment and meaningful integration of providers and payers is needed. Wherever structural or other impediments preclude full integration, joint ventures are the best alternative.
