DMAA Health Care Reform Principles Call for Focus on Quality, Efficiency
Date:12/15/2008

."

Health care reform's goal should be to improve quality and efficiency of care for all consumers, DMAA says. Broad-scale reform must:

  • Seek to improve the health of the entire population;
  • Increase access to affordable health care coverage options;
  • Center on the needs of consumers;
  • Improve consumer health knowledge and confidence;
  • Encourage engagement and accountability for patients, their families and caregivers;
  • Reward value and quality across all payers and providers;
  • Promote integrated, coordinated care;
  • Increase the availability of primary and preventive care
  • Promote transparency of price and quality;
  • Support providers who implement health information technology to improve safety and coordination;
  • Implement a national health data repository;
  • Include rigorous evaluation of clinical and administrative interventions, with feedback loops to continuously improve health care delivery; and
  • Support the continued use of tax benefits to expand insurance coverage.

DMAA and its members, Moorhead said, can contribute much as policymakers begin the reform process. "Our members offer valuable experience in the design and evaluation of integrated population health programs and consumer and caregiver engagement, education and support," she says. "These areas of expertise will be critical as we redesign our health care system and shift our focus to evidence-based prevention and care for the entire population."
