Coordinated Care, Delivery System Redesign, Payment Reform, Rewarding Value, Triple Aim, Controlling Costs
As one looks at the efforts to transform health care delivery and payment in Colorado, two overwhelming impressions emerge. The first is the sheer quantity of innovation underway in our state. To see what I mean, look at CIVHC’s Inventory of Payment Reform and Delivery Redesign Strategies and the graphic that accompanies it . While we’ve done our best to be comprehensive, we know we’ve left important initiatives off these documents (and please contact us if yours is missing). But even our non-exhaustive list requires nearly two dozen pages to describe.
Colorado Health Foundation, The Colorado Trust, Triple Aim, claims, database, All Payer Claims Database
Developing an information resource as complex as the Colorado All Payer Claims Database is a difficult and challenging undertaking. Although sophisticated technology is available, creating a functional database from complex claims information submitted by multiple payers and spanning several years is no easy task. The reality is that even the large and well established health payers face challenges in synthesizing and making sense of their own claims data.
Disruptive Innovation, Triple Aim, Data
There is broad consensus from stakeholders that our current dysfunctional system needs to change dramatically to reach the Triple Aim objectives of better health, better care and lower costs. Making the transformation happen is the difficult part. At CIVHC, we find it useful to remind stakeholders across Colorado that efforts need to be informed by three “tsunamis of change” which we believe will alter the landscape of health care over the next decade.
