Navigating the Value-based Care Landscape

A Musculoskeletal Guide

The purpose of this document is to take the existing — often opaque — value-based care landscape and make it more digestible and understandable. To accomplish this, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) has developed a value-based care continuum (VBCC) to help practices navigate the various APMs created to achieve value-based care.

This includes identifying where a practice’s existing payment arrangements fall along the VBCC, understanding the transition sought by purchasers/payers to value-based care, and planning for continued changes in APM payer contracting arrangements.
