The COVID Catalyst: How the pandemic will create opportunity in referral networks

The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated Healthcare providers operating under the fee-for-service model; the American Hospital Association estimates that from March 1 to June 30, 2020, America’s hospitals and post-acute providers lost $202.6 billion. Meanwhile, organizations relying on managed care models have held finances steady.

While this is unlikely to change how providers are paid, COVID has acted as a catalyst in health care, and initiatives like bundled payments and value-based purchasing programs that prioritize coordinated care and quality outcomes are gaining support.
