As noted in the Institute of Medicine’s seminal report Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century, “health care today harms too frequently and routinely fails to deliver its potential benefits.” For over a decade, foundations have been showcasing to the field that improving health care quality is both needed and possible. GIH recognizes that this work is now an integral part of the health reform law and that bridging the “quality chasm” will require change at all levels of our health care system.

This is a five-part Health Affairs Blog series, produced in conjunction with the Bipartisan Policy Center, examining current issues and care models in the delivery system reform effort. Each post will be jointly authored by Democratic and Republican leaders in health policy.
While insurance coverage and access dominate policy conversations now, issues of the cost and quality of care are not far from the surface. To achieve value for the health care dollars, policymakers and payers have sponsored a broad range of activity around payment reforms to support new models of care. The authors of this Health Affairs blog ask the question: with so many diverse reforms taking place, how is it possible to generate the evidence needed for informed decision making about payment reforms for the future?
