    EVP and Chief Medical Officer
    MediMedia USA
    Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine
    Robert Wood Johnson Medical School
  • 2. Road to Healthcare Reform
  • 3. Health reform: early 20th century
    1912: Theodore Roosevelt believed that no country could be strong whose people were sick and poor, campaigned on a platform that called for mandatory health insurance for workers
    AMA originally supported universal coverage, but by 1920, many physicians viewed compulsory insurance as threat to private practice, paternalistic, and “un-American” and AMA House of Delegates voted to oppose.
  • 4. Health reform: mid 20th century
    FDR spoke in favor of a right to medical care, but did not push compulsory HI over fear that it would endanger other Social Security reforms
    Bill after bill introduced to mandate coverage, but none passed the Congress
  • 5. Health reform: mid-20th century
    1945: Truman proposed a single plan to provide coverage for all age groups financed by 4% rise in Social Security payroll taxes
    AMA raised $3.5 million to oppose the bill, calling it “regimentation” and “totalitarianism”—even though Truman had no chance of getting it through a GOP-controlled Congress
  • 6. Health reform: the 1960s
    Kennedy campaigned for a comprehensive program of HI coverage for the elderly
    AMA established AMPAC with goal of electing conservatives to Congress and opposing Medicare
  • 7. Health reform: the 1960s
    Assassination of JFK and LBJ’s ascendancy changed everything; LBJ believed in Medicare even more than JFK and knew how to get legislation through Congress
    1964 elections: LBJ trounced Goldwater and the Democrats gained a 2-1 majority in Congress
  • 8. Health reform: the 1960s
    1965 Medicare and Medicaid passed, providing hospital and medical care for the elderly and creating a State/Federal partnership to cover the very poor
  • 9. Health reform: 1970s
    Under Nixon, Medicare expanded to cover disabled, Wage and Price controls; beginning of limits on Medicare payments to physicians and hospitals, increased regulation of physicians and health care facilities
    Nixon proposed mandatory employer-sponsored HI but didn’t pass Congress
  • 10. Health reform: 1970s
    • 1976: Carter campaigns for catastrophic plan, but after election priority shifts to controlling health care costs
    • 11. Sen. Kennedy offers new legislation for mandatory employer HI, government subsidies for poor, competition among private plans, and negotiated fees
    • 12. Bills fail due to economic recession, rising health costs, Congressional committee restructuring, and failure of advocates for comprehensive coverage to compromise
  • Health reform: 1980s
    Reagan favored repeal of many of the regulatory laws passed in the previous decade (e.g., National Health Planning Act and PSRO program); market-based “pro-competition” approach and tax credits favored for expanding HI
    Medicare catastrophic and prescription drug coverage enacted, but repealed as seniors objected to paying for it
    Growth in budget deficits led to new methods of paying doctors and hospitals
  • 13. Health reform: 1990s
    Rising health care costs and 46 million uninsured increased popular support for HI reform
    Clinton administration became the first since Truman to pursue a comprehensive plan to provide universal coverage
    Health Security Act called for mandated employer and individual coverage, managed competition, purchasing alliances, global budgets
    Plan failed to pass congressional committees
  • 14. Health reform: late-1990s
    Following defeat of Clinton plan, more modest goals were set for expanding coverage, including S-CHIP program for low-income children
    GOP take-over of Congress led to enactment of Balanced Budget Act of 1997, which mandated cuts in payments to hospitals, physicians, other providers and new “Medicare+Choice” program—first step toward goal of privatizing Medicare
  • 15. Health reform: early 21st century
    Ironically, Republican Congress passed and President George W. Bush sign into law the largest expansion of federal entitlements since 1965: Medicare Prescription Drug Program (Part D)
    Decision to run the program through private insurers and PBMs put a conservative “stamp” on expansion of entitlements
    No dedicated funding or offsets, adding to federal deficit
  • 16. Health reform: the present
    Obama campaigned for universal health care coverage, 2008 elections returned the Democrats to the White House and solidified control over Congress
    After 18 months of contentious debate, Congress passes health care reform in March, 2010
  • 17. Health reform: the present

  • 20. ACA: Coverage
    Large employers must pay a penalty if their employees obtain coverage through an exchange (2014)
    Individuals required to buy coverage or pay penalty (2014)
    Medicaid expanded to 133% of FPL with 100% of cost initially paid for by federal government (2014), phases down to 90%
  • 21. ACA: Coverage
    When fully implemented, 34 million previously uninsured Americans will have coverage (94% of legal residents)
    Half by HI offered through exchanges, half by Medicaid
    But most Americans will continue to obtain coverage through employer-sponsored HI

  • 29. Healthcare Reform and the Patient Centered Medical Home
  • 30. The Need
  • 31. Need for a New Healthcare Delivery Model
    Increasing costs
    Healthcare costs are growing faster than the economy and the cost of care is becoming difficult for employers, government and individuals to meet.
    Need to improve quality
    Patients receiving recommended treatment 55 % of the time
    Poor U.S. performance on healthcare benchmarks compared to other developed countries despite spending more.
    Regional variation
    Healthcare cost and quality vary substantially among geographic regions. Little relationship between cost and quality.
  • 32. Need for a New Healthcare Delivery Model
    Inadequate response to chronic care needs
    Increasingly aging and chronically ill population with payment system that doesn’t recognize services found necessary for essential care e.g. care coordination, evidence-based population management, disease self management
    Decreased Interest in Primary Care
    The number of new students entering into primary care is decreasing and physicians who have chosen the field are disproportionately leaving compared to other specialties.
    Both domestic and international data indicating that higher proportion of primary care physicians related to higher healthcare quality and lower costs.
  • 33. Key Elements of Patient Centered Medical Home
  • 34. A Joint Proposed SolutionThe Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH)

    • 38. Nexus of patient-centered care, primary care and chronic care model concepts
  • The Patient-Centered Medical Home
    Redesigns clinical delivery and payment to facilitate
    Patient-centered, longitudinal, coordinated care delivered by a “recognized” practice with a personal physician
    Who accepts responsibility for the patient’s “whole person”
    Who acts in partnership with patients and in collaboration with multidisciplinary teams (nurses, physician specialists, health educators, pharmacists)
    Who uses practice level systems to improve access and communication, care integration, patient safety and outcomes
    Who accepts accountability for care provided through on-going performance measurement and quality improvement.

    “…consist of providers who are jointly held accountable for achieving measured quality improvements and reductions in the rate of spending growth.” ¹
    MEDPAC Explanation: “…a group of physicians teamed with a hospital would have joint responsibility for the quality and cost of care provided to a large Medicare patient population…Potential ACOs include: integrated delivery systems, physician–hospital organizations, a hospital plus multispecialty groups, and a hospital teamed with independent practices.” ²

  • 72. U.S. Encourages Bundling Medicare Payments
    The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid invited providers on Tuesday to help develop four models to bundle payments as part of a larger effort to improve patient care and reduce costs.
    The program is meant to encourage hospitals, doctors and other specialists to coordinate in treating a patient's specific condition during a single hospital stay and recovery.
    The four models give providers flexibility on how they get paid and for which services, as well as give them financial incentives to avoid unnecessary or duplicative procedures. Three models involve a retrospective bundled payment arrangement, and one model would pay providers prospectively
    Applicants for these models would also decide whether to define the episode of care as the acute care hospital stay only (Model 1), the acute care hospital stay plus post-acute care associated with the stay (Model 2), or just the post-acute care, beginning with the initiation of post-acute care services after discharge from an acute inpatient stay (Model 3).  Under the fourth model, CMS would make a single, prospective bundled payment that would encompass all services furnished during an inpatient stay by the hospital, physicians and other practitioners.
    Three models involve a retrospective bundled payment arrangement, and one model would pay providers prospectively
