Health Outreach Partners, an organization whose mission is “to build strong, effective, and sustainable grassroots health models by partnering with local community-based organizations across the country in order to improve the quality of life of low-income, vulnerable, and underserved populations”, offers a new resource. Outreach & Value-Based Care: Impacting Health Care Delivery and Cost through Integrated Community Health Outreach Programs describes how health centers can use their outreach teams to enhance value under service delivery models such as Patient Centered Medical Homes and Accountable Care Organizations. It offers examples of how outreach programs can enhance revenues from alternative payment models such as shared savings, pay-for-performance, and PCMH supplemental payments. The resource is a complement to HOP’s Outreach Business Value Toolkit.
