  15. 15. Ten Rules to Guide Redesign of the Health Care System 1. Care Based on Continuous Healing 6. Safety as a System Property- Patients Relationships- Patients should have should be safe from injury by the care system; access to care 24/7 and in many forms which should strive to prevent & mitigate errors 2. Customization Based on Patient Needs 7. The Need for Transparency- & Values- System meets most common needs Patients should have access to care & capable of fulfilling unique preferences 24/7 and in many forms 3. Patient As the Source of Control2- 8. Anticipation of Needs- The health system Patients receive adequate information to make should anticipate patient needs rather than Informed choices about healthcare decisions reacting to them 4. Shared Knowledge & Free Flow of Info- 9. Continuous Decrease in Waste- Patients have open access to their medical The health system will not waste resources info and communication with their clinician or patient time 5. Evidence-based decision making- Patients 10. Cooperation Among Clinicians- receive care based on best available scientific Clinicians & institutions should collaborate & knowledge with no variation Coordinate to ensure coordination of care © 2010.

Validation #8: 2008 Payment Reform Options Summary on a Project of the Bipartisan Policy Center Funded Through the RWJF 1: Continue Current Financing Structure 2: Rollback High-Income Tax Cuts Redirect revenue funds to better use Use revenue generated from expiring tax cuts Economic Implications: No clear way to improve Economic Implications: Greatest impact on high-income funds utilization and recoup increased spending tax payers; may reduce national productivity Health System Implications: Increase in health programs Health System Implications: Effect a “one-time” coupled with further erosion of employer-based coverage adjustment in tax revenue and no real impact and potential for continued increase in uninsured workforce on healthcare spending or cost containment 3: Reform the Health Benefit Tax Exclusion 4: Institute a Play-or-Pay Model Limit/eliminate employer premiums from employees’ TI Employers pay for employee insurance or a tax equal to Economic Implications: High-income employees cost of alternative source coverage for workers absorb tax increase; employers reduce non-wage costs Economic Implications: Expands pool of employers contributing to health financing Health System Implications: Altering nature of coverage limiting health benefit tax exclusion may change Health System Implications: Dependent on design; it price sensitivity and/or population cost awareness may increase employer-sponsored coverage 5: Implement a Value-Added Tax Replace Medicare payroll tax with a value-added tax on manufacturers/sellers of goods and services Economic Implications: Flat tax on consumption, encourage more savings than other options, and spreads burden of healthcare across entire population Health System Implications: No direct connection to reform, but could increase public awareness of system cost SOURCE: “Financing the U.S. Health System: Issues and Options for Change.” Bipartisan Policy Center Report. 6/08. © 2010.

  28. 28. Implications for Healthcare Providers in 2008 Clinical Transformation:   Bridging the Quality Gap- the adoption of HIT6 has and will continue to serve as an enabler for quality improvements in our healthcare system   The Patient-centered Care Model- increased industry focus on consumer knowledge and consumerism7, need for reduction of errors, changes in medical staff education are all contributors to the transition toward this model   Following the “Ten Rules”- sharing of knowledge (consumers and clinicians), elimination of waste through quality improvement initiatives, and increasing collaborative networks of physicians and healthcare systems will continue to accelerate improvements in the following8:  Access to care,  Quality and costs of care,  Management of chronic conditions for an ever changing population © 2010. Clinical Horizons, Inc. All Rights Reserved
  29. 29. Implications for Healthcare Providers in 2008 Organizational Transformation:   Bridging the Quality Gap- since 2001 the surge in adopting HIT has supported increased collaboration among health systems, physicians, payers, and regulatory agencies   Demographic Changes and Increases in Chronic Conditions- These issues are driving healthcare workforce strategies for sustainment, education, and the dealing with the forecasted future shortage in clinician talent   Innovation in Our Payment System- at the national level this is needed to improve access to care and alleviate the burden of paying for uncompensated care9   Transition from Stage 1 to Stage 4 in Relation to HIT Adoption- Infusion of HIT systems that impact workflow and communications can initially increase and stress workforces; however as we advance through the learning curve processes are standardized, people adapt to changes, and we transition toward Stage 4, the learning organization plateau © 2010.
