ReACH Director Joel Tsevat MD, MPH Explains Opportunities for Value-Based Healthcare to Benefit from Cost-Effectiveness Analysis

A recent article featured on HealthLeaders focused on the ways that cost-effectiveness analysis and value-based healthcare are interestecting and the important insights that they provide for physcians and administrative leaders.  Dr. Joel Tsevat, MD, MPH, Director of the ReACH Center and a Professor of Medicine at UT Health San Antonio recently published reserch in the Annals of Internal Medicine that calls for greater intersection between cost-effectiveness analysis and value-based healthcare.  Tsevat points out that the key difference between value-based healthcare and cost-effectiveness analysis is the time frame that the analysis focuses on.  Value-based healthcare tends to look at shorter-termed outcomes with bundled payments for 90-,60- and 30-day episodes while cost-effectiveness anaylsis most commonly focuses on the patient's lifetime.  To read more about the intersection between these two disciplines  click here.
