The March 2017 edition of Health Affairs examines what we have learned about what works and what doesn't when it comes to delivery system innovation. From leading health care systems seeking to improve their own performance; public and private payers increasingly relying upon value-based payment methods; and clinical leaders and patients demanding change, innovation at the point of care is necessary not only for improved efficiency, but also for improved quality, better patient engagement, and a more satisfied clinical workforce.
A March 22 forum at the Central Public Library in Sacramento, California featured authors from the journal, and a variety of regional perspectives, for a discussion of innovations currently underway. Topics discussed included: what we are learning; and measures policymakers can take to understand, evaluate, and spread the word about new approaches to delivering care.
Health Affairs is grateful to Blue Shield of California Foundation for its support of the issue and forum.
