Children’s Crisis Treatment Center (CCTC)
Value-Based Care is an emerging practice in the healthcare field; shifting the current “fee for service” system, which incentivizes volume/quantity, to one that focuses on quality and outcomes. Children’s Crisis Treatment Center (CCTC) will be the first children’s behavioral health provider in Philadelphia to fully embrace this shift through a transformation of their organizational practices. They will build out a new data analytics system, creating the ability to conduct the sophisticated data management and analyses required, and develop new ways of working both administratively and programmatically including piloting a new value-based contract/payment system with up to two programs. Through these efforts, they will increase the focus on quality and outcomes for the children and families they serve. Their approach has the potential for a ripple effect and could serve as a model for others locally and nationally.
