Nonprofit National Business Coalition on health has launched a value-based purchasing guide website to support employers, purchaser-led coalitions, health plans and other health care entities.

"Our nation's ability to successfully compete in a global economy will suffer until we find solutions that can improve the health of all Americans and advance quality and control costs," says Andrew Webber, NBCH president and CEO. "We can, and we must, do better than ranking 37th among nations in population health status while spending twice as much money per citizen on health care services than other countries. Value-based purchasing strategies represent the path forward."

The guide provides information regarding multiple VBP concepts and strategies, and some of these elements include calculating and reporting comparative performance, performance-based provider pay, and designing strategies and incentives to encourage individuals to choose high-value services and providers and better manage their own health.
