Why And How We Do It
Somehow, one of the most personal aspects of life—healthcare—has become one of the most impersonal experiences there is. Not anymore. At CenterWell Senior Primary Care, we come to work every day driven by a desire to deliver care—grounded in dignity and respect—that seniors deserve. Every patient is an individual with unique needs and should be treated as such. We not only care for our patients. We care about them, too. How do we do it?
CenterWell operates under a value-based care model, compensating doctors for patients’ positive health outcomes. By comparison, under traditional (fee-for-service) healthcare models, physicians are compensated based on the number of patients they see and procedures they order. In short: we reward quality over quantity. By deeply engaging in our patients’ lives, we can anticipate their unique needs and personalize our care to fit them. Below are key differences between the fee-for-service and value-based care models.1

Fee For Service
For physicians, a value-based care model recognizes their commitment to their patients' health, and compensates them for delivering high-quality, complex care.
And for patients, value-based care often means a better experience, lower costs, and better overall health in every aspect—mind, body, and spirit.
