The U.S. health care system is undergoing a transformation in the way it delivers and pays for care. As the traditional fee-for-service payment system gives way to more value-based payment arrangements, understanding and defining the value of health care treatments and interventions has become a national priority.
Value frameworks are the latest tools to help health care stakeholders assess the value of new treatments, and the patient community is eager to be a part of both the value discussion and the creation of these tools.
Patient perceptions on value are often shaped by a treatment’s ability to help achieve personal goals, and as a result, these perceptions can vary significantly from other stakeholders. To have true utility, value models must incorporate the patient voice.
The National Health Council, with stakeholder input, has created a Value Model Rubric to help evaluate the patient centeredness of value models and to guide value model developers on the meaningful incorporation of patient engagement throughout their processes.
