Bundled payment in primary care physiotherapy
Identification of physiotherapists’ barriers and facilitators for the implementation of bundled payment in primary care for patients with hip and knee osteoarthritis.
Physiotherapists see bundled payment as the future, but experience barriers during the implementation. This was caused by the instruction, unfamiliarity with the concept and the specific target population.
01 June 2018 - 01 September 2021
A group of 37 primary care physiotherapists was offered to use the bundled payment arrangement for one year in their patients with hip or knee osteoarthritis, insured by VGZ. Afterwards, physiotherapists were invited for an interview.
Collaboration with knowledge partners
The project group consisted of VGZ, ReumaNederland and Zorg1.
