Transforming the Healthcare System : What Works?
Improve health and health care, lower costs: Can it all be done? Regional Health Improvement Collaboratives have been creating new strategies for more than a decade, and proving them on the ground. Leaders from three of the Collaboratives present the results of pioneering efforts in their regions. From a pilot project in California to create payment incentives for cost and quality improvements by providers, to the development of multi-stakeholder campaigns to improve population health in the Memphis area, to significant reductions in hospital infection rates in New Mexico, the Collaboratives have documented real and significant change.
