Value-based payment contracts requiring value-based health care delivery are increasingly common, but should rural health care organizations participate in new value-based payment opportunities, or should they continue to rely on fee-for-service payments?

During this presentation, Dr. Clint MacKinney will discuss the state of rural value-based care and payment, and recommend four strategies to inform value-based contract decision-making to help prepare rural healthcare organizations for value-based care.
