The Impact of Value-Based Purchasing for Your Organization

In FY 2018 (payment adjustment effective for discharges from October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018) the Value-Based Purchasing program includes a total of 21 measures. The measures are represented in four different Domains; Clinical Care, Patient Experience of Care (HCAHPS), Efficiency and Cost Reduction, and Patient Safety. The diagnosis-related groups (DRG) base operating payments remained the same from FY 2017 to FY 2018 at 2.00 percent, where it is expected to remain in succeeding years.
