In a sharply focused agenda to drive value-based care delivery, the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services are progressively establishing carrot-and-stick programs and policies that encourage clinicians to integrate patient-centered approaches to improve care for people affected by chronic medical conditions. Embedded in policies finalized for 2019 are penalties and incentives intended to promote better engagement of patients and families in shared decision-making (SDM) and to improve care coordination for high-risk patient populations with serious medical conditions such as heart failure (HF). A significant proportion of these patients face major challenges related to social determinants of health (SDoH).
