  • Health Information Technology and Health Care Reform Must Be Well-Aligned To Improve Health and Lower Costs | Markle | Advancing America's Future
    attacks and strokes and cutting medication errors and administrative burdens in half will allow health IT investments and health care reform to be directed toward results that will benefit the American public for generations according to the Markle Foundation the Center for American Progress and the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform at Brookings The three organizations today hosted a forum of industry and policy leaders on the need for health IT investments under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ARRA that support a broader transformation to improve health outcomes and reduce health care cost growth Health reform and health IT investments will protect all Americans only if we set concrete health improvement targets and identify the specific costs to be controlled said Markle President Zoë Baird We know how to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes and how to slash the time physicians spend on administrative tasks Let s set these goals and others like them This is the only way we can expand coverage improve outcomes and control costs We must take concrete steps now toward a health care system that pays for better quality and lower costs rather than the unsustainable status quo of paying primarily for volume of medical services said Mark McClellan MD PhD Director of the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform and Leonard D Schaeffer Chair in Health Policy Studies at the Brookings Institution By tying support for health IT directly to achieving these quality and cost improvements the new health IT payments can be a critical step toward achieving this vision The group urged public and private sector leaders to embrace the 2015 health care improvement goals presented last month by an advisory committee of the U S Department of Health and Human Services HHS Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT ONC The goals include preventing 1 million heart attacks and strokes cutting rates of medication errors preventable hospitalizations and racial ethnic disparities in diabetes control in half and providing patients with easy access to their own health information The group proposes adding two 2015 goals to specifically address growth in health care costs identifying duplicative health care services and reducing them by 50 percent and halving the time spent by physicians on administrative tasks These goals are ambitious but achievable if we implement health IT and health reform effectively said Todd Park Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress Top public and private sector leadership should firmly embrace these goals and facilitate their realization through communications to their own organizations and the American public We should commit to the achievement of these goals as we dive into the details of policy formulation and execution The three organizations have submitted a collaborative comment on behalf of a broad range of groups urging HHS to structure the criteria for ARRA s health IT subsidies to doctors and hospitals in a way that is most likely to achieve these key 2015 goals Success will be measured in the
