Report Suggests Accountable Care Improvements

Nov 8, 2014
 

The National Pharmaceutical Council and Discern Health recently issued a report identifying gaps in accountable care quality measures and strategies for improvement. Suggestions include implementing outcome measures that are meaningful to patients and providers; that evaluate care across conditions, settings and time; and that matter most to patients, as well as layered and modular approaches that optimize measurement efforts. The basic takeaway from the report is that accountable care has potential to improve health and health care delivery while lowering costs. However, there needs to be balance by measures to ensure the provision of appropriate care when transitioning to higher value care. National Pharmaceutical Council and Discern Health Report
