There is a need to transform the United States' current model of health care financing - which rewards the volume of services provided - to a model that incentivizes integrated payment approaches that are person-centered and holistic in advancing individual, community, and population health.

The National Academy of Medicine Leadership Consortium and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's Board on Health Care Services hosted a virtual workshop series titled Financing That Rewards Better Health and Well-Being in May and June of 2021. Speakers and discussions focused on identifying examples of care delivery and payment models that are focused on patient outcomes and advancing health equity, considering barriers and opportunities to scaling effective integrated payment models and approaches, and discussing strategies for transforming health financing to improve equity and individual and population health. This Proceedings of a Workshop-in Brief summarizes the discussions that occurred throughout the workshop series.
