    readmissions But in setting out to talk with frail elderly people leaving the hospital for a short term stay in a nursing home before they go home what do we imagine are their highest priorities The four that Medicare proposes might make the list except that the way we measure readmissions is seriously deficient even with risk adjustment http medicaring org 2014 12 16 protecting hospitals http medicaring org 2014 12 08 lynn evidence But most people have other priorities that are equally or more important such as whether there is a workable plan to get the daily care and support needed e g housing modifications food transportation and personal care Another question elders often ask is what the effects of their disabilities on the family will be especially if family members have to provide more care Elders may also want to be sure that they will have the symptom pain control spiritual support and reliable supportive care that they will need as their conditions get worse whether they are in a care system that will maximally preserve their financial assets so that they have a lower risk of running out and whether they will have to move to a nursing home Medicare s metrics don t yet even try to address these concerns Even more troubling is the fact that Medicare does not yet have any methods to judge the match between the services given and the patient s perspective as to what matters Current metrics are all grounded in professional standards and professionals have been slow to build standards that truly take into account the very different things that individuals want in late life A high quality service delivery system must try to match the priority needs and preferences of each elder As Medicare moves toward paying its providers on the basis of value it is important to keep in mind what you value is often not what I value and this difference becomes more pronounced as we have to live with physical and financial limitations and the increasing proximity of death Here are some steps that we can take We should demand that Medicare invest in developing measures that matter for the frail phase of life before distorting the delivery system with incentives applying to everyone e g to avoid pressure ulcers falls and readmissions and to have and achieve goals concerning function CMS should be willing to be the measures steward or should fund another entity to do so since the money available for frail elder care does not spin off strong organizations that can do the developmental work and then maintain updated measures Our health information systems e g in Meaningful Use Stage 3 should at least start making room in medical records to document each patient s priorities and the care plan that is supposed to reflect those priorities Buying on value is the right idea but buying value for each elder requires knowing what each one values Senate Works to Advance Care Plans
