Dreamland CoverIn 1929, in the blue-collar city of Portsmouth, Ohio, a company built a swimming pool the size of a football field; named Dreamland, it became the vital center of the community.

Laura Adams Photo Few would dispute that health care systems across the globe are not performing up to their potential. The problems are highly complex and no one entity can solve them by acting alone. The greatest opportunity to deliver on the promise may lie in involving “unusual suspects” in communities, guided by a new definition of health, new ways to tell the truth about providers’ performance and a recognition that the patient/consumer is already in control of their health. When these principles guide design, hospitals can create a health care system worthy of the trust of those who depend on it literally for their lives.

During the KHA Annual Convention, May 12-13 in Lexington, Lars Enstrom and James Callanan of Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) Healthcare Industry Group will discuss, “How Alternative Payment Methods (APMs) Influence Health Care Delivery Patient Flow, Cost and Quality.”

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has set a goal of tying 50 percent of fee-for-service Medicare payments to quality or value through APMs, such as Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) or bundled payment arrangements by the end of 2018. As payers investigate alternative ways to transfer financial risk and quality accountability to providers, providers need to develop approaches that break down the historic “silo” nature of treatment patterns and develop pathways that respond to the particular pressures of each type of APM while improving the outcomes for patients.
