Payment Models


The WEDI Report Payment Models subworkgroup evaluates methods to enhance the current fee-for-service delivery model to derive greater efficiencies. Evaluate attributes of alternative payment models for delivering value by associating cost and quality of service delivery to price (e.g., better care at lower cost), and outline a core set of business, information, and exchange requirements.

The subworkgroup evaluates existing standards vis-à-vis alternative payment models, and outline requirements for implementation (e.g., feasible now, need to create new standards or need to modify existing standards) and roles and responsibilities of healthcare stakeholders in facilitating change and implementation.
