Action Brief: Implementing Global Payments

Action Brief: Implementing Global Payments

Introducing the Implementing Global Payments Action Brief- updated in Summer 2018

Global, or capitated, payment attempts to address many of the inherent weaknesses of fee-for-service. The Global Payment Action Brief includes results from the Maryland All-Payer Global Budget Hospital System, and the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Alternative Quality Contract, among other examples!

This Action Brief covers the following topics:

  • how global payment works and what problems it solves,
  • the different types of risk-sharing arrangements in use,
  • examples of successful global payment programs in place today,
  • what steps purchasers can take to implement, and
  • what challenges and risks they may face along the way.
