Advancing Health System Performance: New State Roles


Even while the President and Congress pursue comprehensive national health reform, states can play important roles in expanding insurance coverage, improving quality of care, and controlling costs—both individually and in partnership with the federal government. This project will examine provider payment and delivery system innovations taking place throughout the states and identify those that hold the most promise for achieving high-value care. Former Commonwealth Fund assistant vice president Anne Gauthier will undertake case studies of Minnesota and Massachusetts’ payment reform initiatives and prepare three reports describing current and future state roles in strengthening primary care, and improving delivery of chronic care, establishing health insurance exchanges, and implementing national reforms related to provider payment, delivery of services, and quality of care. She will also present her findings through presentations to state and national audiences.
