  2. Nearly half of primary care physicians are actively pursuing value-based reimbursement contracts
  3. New skill sets and capabilities are needed to effectively manage risk under VBR models
  4. Shared-risk VBR models will grow faster than any other type of VBR model by 2019
  5. Physician participation in value-based care delivery models varies by practice type
