2012 Fall Forum: Health Care Transformed: Better Delivery for Those Most in Need
Improving the quality of health care delivery is a hallmark of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Provisions in the health care law encourage and support innovative approaches to transform the health care system to one that improves quality, increases access, eliminates waste, and reduces costs, particularly for those with multiple chronic conditions.
- promising innovations in health care delivery models,
- necessary elements for creating a patient-centered medical home,
- payment reform, and
- the work of fellow funders supporting coordinated care efforts in their communities.
Thursday, November 15
Keynote Speaker: Jeffrey Brenner, Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers
Friday, November 16
Keynote Speaker: Mitchell Katz, Los Angeles Department of Health Services
The second day of the Fall Forum will focus on the creation and expansion of patient-centered medical care, especially within the safety net. Funders, providers, and field experts will discuss the ways in which the ACA is supporting the development and diffusion of patient-centered medical care; required elements to create and sustain health homes within primary care practices; issues surrounding payment reform and costs savings; the integration of behavioral and mental health services; evaluating patient experiences; and shared examples of successes in the field. Ample evidence exists to demonstrate the value and cost savings of patient-centered care—can the vision be turned into a reality?
