Demonstrate value to providers and payers

It is important for life sciences companies to demonstrate product value to providers and payers. Optum provides guidance and resources to develop effective value-based contracting strategies that save manufacturers time and improve execution rates.

Our VBC team regularly negotiates contracts for payers. Their broad expertise in data and analytics, health economics and outcomes research, and actuarial analysis brings a unique and critical perspective to life sciences clients.

Strengthen stakeholder collaboration

Our VBC services encourage collaboration between all stakeholders. Early engagement is the key to success. Effective and executable value-based contracting incorporates flexibility and alignment of both clinical and business perspectives.
