The transformation of American health care is shining a spotlight on the shift from volume to value-based care. Across specialties, physicians expect that value-based payment models will equal about 50 percent of their total compensation in the next 10 years.1  Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Mathews Burwell announced in January an accelerated goal to have 30 percent of Medicare payments in alternative payment models, including bundled payments, by the end of 2016 and 50 percent by 2018.2  The Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH) Learning Collaborative is implementing a proactive vision of redefining value propositions in new models of care delivery and payment to provide relevance in an evolving market. The PSH model is a patient-centered, physician-led, interdisciplinary and team-based system of coordinated care for the procedural and surgical patient.3
