February 10, 2021 – Recently, physicians reported that they are suffering from a work-life balance and that has only been exasperated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Physicians are reeling from long hours, bureaucracy, and burn out and transitioning from FFS to VBP is only adding to the burden. However, engaging physician leadership is essential for any healthcare organization that is pushing for a shift to VBP.
Organizations looking to drive physician engagement and VBP adoption should focus on three main priorities:
- Providing physicians with the digital and updated tools necessary to meet new documentation responsibilities
- Establish a “physician champion” on your team to serve as the intermediary between front line physicians and healthcare organization administrators
- Align compensation models by reiterating that current FFS practices are leaving money on the table
By following these core principles, healthcare organizations can help make the shift to VBP easier for physicians.
