Primaris CEO featured in Healthcare Finance News

Posted by Kellyn Freeman on Jun 1, 2015 1:23:00 PM

Primaris CEO Richard A. Royer was featured today in Healthcare Finance News on "5 Steps to a Better Payment Methodology.

Here's an excerpt from that article:   

"Healthcare executives are well aware that both government agencies and private insurers are moving away from the fee-for-services model and towards a value-based payment methodology. Stakeholders currently using a mix of value-based remibusement and fee-for-service models project that payment with some form of value measurement will make up two-thirds of the market by 2020. That’s up from one-third today, according to The 2014 State of Value-Based Reminbursement, an independent research study of 464 payers and providers that was released last year."
