Open Data, IT, and Value-Based Payment: The (Bipartisan) Approach to Health-Care Delivery Reform
As the debate over the future of the Affordable Care Act rages in Washington, one set of reforms continues unabated: the movement to transform the way we deliver health care. As the first U.S. chief technology officer, Aneesh Chopra worked to align payment reform with advances in health IT and to shift to open more government-held health data—changes that are ushering in a golden era of IT-fueled care delivery innovation.
In this presentation:
- Reviews recent efforts to open up data across electronic health records, payers, and the government to foster a growing ecosystem of tech-enabled services that are tackling waste and boosting care quality.
- Explains how these efforts have helped consumers take a more active role in navigating the health-care delivery system and making better decisions at each step of their care journey.
- Offers health-care organizations a pragmatic path to building the necessary foundation for organizing, enriching, and (securely) sharing patient health data, including taking full advantage of the emerging "health internet".
- Identifies the efforts worth advancing even in this period of policy uncertainty.
