New health reform strategy would insure everyone, improve health and slow spending growth
Date:2/18/2009

e Reforms Needed To Yield Greater Access, Better Outcomes and Savings

The Commission has laid out five essential strategies for reform, along with policy options to illustrate the potential gain. The strategies include:

  • Affordable coverage for all. Build on the current public-private health insurance system by establishing a health insurance exchange that offers an enhanced choice of private plans and a new public plan. The public plan would offer comprehensive benefits with incentives for disease prevention and payment methods that reward results. Insurance market reforms and income-related premium assistance would assure coverage was affordable and accessible.

  • Align incentives with value and effective cost control. Move away from the current fee-for-service payment system toward one that emphasizes value rather than volume, enhances the value of primary care, and holds providers accountable for quality and efficiency.

  • Accountable, accessible, patient-centered and coordinated care. Move from the current fragmented health care system toward a care system in which everyone has a personal source of care that is accessible, coordinates care when needed, and is accountable for obtaining the best health results possible.

  • Aim high to improve quality and health outcomes: Infrastructure and Public Health. Invest to accelerate the adoption and effective use of health information technology and to provide information to support and inform better health care decisions by patients and clinicians, with easy access to high quality, useful information. Target public health initiatives on prevention and efforts to improve outcomes for chronic conditions.

  • Accountable leadership and collaboration to set and achieve national goals. Establish new national policies that enable leadership and foster collaboration among the public and private sectors to set and achieve new goals and carry out reforms. <
