As the industry trends away from fee-for-service models, it needs to account for the shift in risk in the value-based care model. Practices and another provider entities become risk-bearing entities (RBEs) when they accept an outcome-based model in which they are compensated for the quality of care, rather than the volume of care.

Private equity is advancing this RBE-based environment with an infusion of cash. Like most opinions of the value-based model, investors also favor it. In their case, they see this new approach to healthcare as economically sustainable and financially rewarding.

RBEs was a healthcare industry trend in our 2022 March Healthcare Classic. Explore this year’s interactive bracket to see the most impactful healthcare trends face off.
