A New Way to Pay

Posted: 09/22/14

Mark Fish is a Managing Director at FTI Consulting, in the Health Solutions practice, and he has spent 24 years in the healthcare industry.  But in the last four – since the passage of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare – Fish has seen a tectonic shift in the healthcare landscape. In May 2014, Mark wrote an article for FTI Journal, “A Road Map for Healthcare Convergence,” detailing how providers need to remake themselves to change successfully from the traditional fee-for-service paradigm, in which reimbursement tracks to the quantity of services delivered, to a pay-for-value model in which having the capabilities to improve patient outcomes – and track that improvement – is critical. In September 2014, we helped Fish publish a version of his FTI Journal article in McKnight’s, here.
