The Executive Committee on Value Purchasing - a multi-stakeholder group of executive leaders representing employers, health plans and providers – was formed to accelerate the adoption of effective innovations in health care delivery. The Committee focuses on aligning market expectations around the capabilities and expectations of performance for several value purchasing strategies, like accountable care organizations, high-performance networks, centers of excellence, and other payment and delivery reforms. Large employers are leaders in health care system payment and delivery reforms, but successful transformation is only possible with collaboration across multiple players in health care.
The Committee created the large employer’s ACO Toolkit, including an ACO Journey Map and ACO Scoring Guide, which aligns market expectations for ACO capabilities at various stages of development and maturity, and helps employers determine when and how to make ACOs a party of their strategy. Many large employers have used the ACO Toolkit and Journey Map to steer their ACO strategy across several markets. The Committee continues to support local market innovations as large, multi-state employers increasingly look to individual geographies to accelerate transformation of the health care delivery system.
