Curbing Costs - Improving Quality of Health Care

Bending the Curve: Person-Centered Health Care Reform

Curbing Costs, Improving Quality of Health Care  

Framework for Improving Care and Slowing Health Care Cost Growth

Recommendations from an expert panel on how to contain costs and boost quality of health care.

Four new analyses on health care costs, supported by RWJF, outline strategies for achieving a sustainable rate of spending, at the same time bolstering the quality of care

A report from the Engleberg Center for Health Care Reform at the Brookings Institution suggests system-wide reforms to Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance markets and exchanges could save the U.S. $300 billion in the next 10 years, and $1 trillion in the next 20 years.

Reforms for Medicare:

  • Transition to Medicare Comprehensive Care (MCC), which reimburses providers on a capitated basis and requires quality and performance measures be met for full payment.
  • Reform Medicare benefits to support more comprehensive care and lower costs.
  • Reform Medicare Advantage to promote high value health plan competition.
  • Use Medicare savings to create predictable payments in traditional Medicare and support the transition to MCC.

Reforms for Medicaid and Care for Vulnerable Populations:

  • Transition current state Medicaid waivers to person-focused Medicaid, a standard process for states to implement Medicaid reforms.
  • Medicaid reforms would be aligned with other initiatives and financial support for health care for lower-income individuals to facilitate care continuity and improve efficiency.
  • Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) would make permanent and expand its “Financial Alignment Demonstration” for Medicare-Medicaid Enrollees into a reformed program forMedicare-Medicaid Aligned Care.  Read the complete article linked below.

What to Do When the Door to the Status Quo Opens Slightly

There are times when you manage to open the door ever so slightly to the status quo -- organizations and institutions that have power and resources to back up their perspective and mandate. To make inroads you must walk through that door and engage with the very people you think are the cause of the problem.

To Solve Youth Homelessness, Talk to Young People

As a teenager, Da’Quan Wilson was homeless, sleeping in friends’ apartments, at relatives’ homes and even in a cemetery. Today, he works as a “Community Connector” with LISC Philadelphia partner People’s Emergency Center (PEC), reaching out to young people who may be undergoing the same sorts of challenges he once did. In our increasingly digital age, community connectors meet people face-to-face, to share information about resources, build neighborhood connection and invite community participation. Many become local leaders in the process.
