Physician leaders want to hold physicians accountable for costs and quality

As the healthcare industry sets its sights on value-based care, findings from a recent survey indicate 69 percent of physician leaders want to hold physicians accountable for the costs of care in addition to the quality of care, according to the American Association for Physician Leadership and the Navigant Center for Healthcare Research and Policy Analysis.

Part one of the three-part survey tapped 2,398 physician leaders, CMOs and senior-level medical executives from a range of healthcare settings to gauge physician's ideas on healthcare reform, leadership competencies and the move to alternative models of care.

Here are four key findings from the survey.

  • A majority of physician leaders — 55 percent — reported they felt the Affordable Care Act is "more good than bad."
  • A majority of respondents — 57 percent — agree or strongly agree accountable care organizations are here to stay.      
  • Even more respondents — 63 percent — disagree or strongly disagree that eliminating fee-for-service medicine in favor of value-based payments will hurt the quality of patient care.
  • Most respondents — 58 percent — agree or strongly agree it is positive that the profession is seeing increased transparency about physicians' business dealings.
