Shared Savings Programs: Lessons Learned from a New York State Community Health Center By: NYSHealth Priority Areas: Advancing Primary Care Date: December 2014 Type: Resources, Article, Transcript
Across the country, providers and payers are experimenting with new payment arrangements to improve health outcomes and reduce costs. The prevailing fee-for-service system pays for inputs rather than outcomes, and more care rather than better care. Alternative payment methods that move away from fee-for-service will drive meaningful change toward delivering and paying for better quality care. However, promising new reimbursement models are still being tested and refined to determine which are most effective, most appealing to payers and providers, and most likely to supplant the fee-for-service model.

To assess the program’s impact on participants' health status, as well as diabetes-related behavioral and psychosocial outcomes, NYSHealth awarded a grant to the University of Michigan’s Department of Medical Education to develop and validate two survey instruments—one for participants and one for volunteer leaders delivering the program—to assess the effectiveness of the diabetes self-management and prevention program.
