Health Care Issues

Delivery System Reform

Delivery system reform is intended to meet the Triple Aim of improving quality for patients, reducing costs and improving population health. Systems are evolving that seek to provide patients with improved care coordination and access to care at the right time and in the right setting across the continuum.

Payment Reform - Payment reform is intended to reduce costs by aligning payment incentives for those who deliver care to improve quality, care coordination and patient safety. Medicare, Medicaid and all other payers are working to change the way they pay for care. Pay for performance, bundled payments and shared savings models are examples.
