LS-B6b: HealthySteps Exclusive—Early Childhood Value-Based Payment Model in Pediatric Primary Care





The current financing structure for pediatric primary care focuses on a narrow range of clinical outcomes and incentivizes volume over value, resulting in insufficient resources to provide the whole-family care needed to address health equity, health-related social needs, and family well-being. Our implementation of this model of advanced primary care operates in clinical settings that serve diverse families who live, work, learn, and play in underserved communities and addresses child and caregiver needs that go beyond physical health. The value-based payment model developed for the model includes clinical quality measures stratified by race and ethnicity to assess and incentivize improvement in equity outcomes.
