Raoul Concepcion, MD, director of the Comprehensive Prostate Center, discusses the impending transition to a value-based model in urology.

The field is moving away from the traditional fee-for-service and many physicians have been hesitant to believe in the switch due to the high rate of tweaking and revising within the value-based system by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

As per the CMS website, value-based programs are focused on paying providers based on the quality of care they give, not the quantity.

According to Concepcion, the way this transition plays out is vital to the future of way medicine is delivered.
