Does every nursing home need a value-based care strategy today? 

The answer, says Brian Fuller, ATI Advisory’s new managing director of value-based care design and delivery, is “unequivocally yes.”

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services continues to promote a shift to have all Medicare beneficiaries engaged in some type of value-based care by 2030, with the goal to be at 60% by the end of 2024.

That’s bringing added pressure to skilled nursing providers, many of whom may still be confused about exactly what value-based care is, how they can participate, and how they might benefit under newer, more nuanced programs. The time to prepare is now, says Fuller.

“The work is incredibly complex and difficult, and it simply doesn’t happen overnight,” Fuller tells McKnight’s Long-Term Care News Senior Editor Kimberly Marselas in this episode. “And so any strategy is a multi-year process. The longer an organization takes to make sure that they have a clear and actionable strategy, the more they risk that they fall further behind in their marketplace and being able to optimize their opportunities.”
