"New Rules" to Guide Health Care Redesign

eAlert 4365f770-55ba-49c7-907f-7170cb6f19c7

To take advantage of the Affordable Care Act’s incentives to deliver better care at lower cost, many health system leaders say they need “new rules” to redesign how care is provided to patients.<br /><br />
In a new <a href="/blog/2015/new-rules-guide-health-care-redesign">blog post</a>, Commonwealth Fund researchers Douglas McCarthy, Martha Hostetter, and Sarah Klein consider how new rules proposed by an Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) alliance of 40 health system leaders might guide improvements for vulnerable patients and those with high costs and high needs. Among them: <em>move knowledge, not people; change the balance of power;</em> and <em>return the money</em>.<br />
