Effective data sharing is critical to the success of population-based payment (PBP) models because the many components of the models—patient attribution, financial benchmarking, and performance measurement—require timely data in order to function. Q Corp is honored to be featured in a white paper from the Population-Based Payment (PBP) Work Group of the Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network - Accelerating and Aligning Population-Based Payment Models: Data Sharing. Access the whitepaper here. This white paper offers guiding principles and recommendations that should be considered in data sharing arrangements in PBP models. The paper outlines a series of “use cases” for data sharing that describe particular types of data sharing arrangements, in both their current and aspirational states. The goal is to create an environment where data follows the patient and is available to all stakeholders (patients, providers, purchasers, and payers) in a timely manner.
