Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

The advent of value-based care as a component of the United States health care system is part of a broader paradigm shifting away from fee-for-service payment models in favor of alternative reimbursement incentives tied to quality and outcome metrics. Bundled care models, gainsharing agreements, and other cost containment measures, although promising, may induce unintended systemwide consequences for orthopedic trauma surgeons who often specialize in tending to costly multiply injured patients and marginalized populations. This article reviews facets of value-based care applicable to orthopedic trauma surgery with an emphasis on public health and ethical considerations for policymakers and orthopedic surgeons.
