High Quality and Affordable Care through Accountability

Health care entities and providers are grappling with the fact that the care delivery landscape continues to evolve and reimbursement is now clearly tied to "outcomes, value, and customer service" versus the traditional "productivity and volume". As readmission and value based purchasing penalties hit the bottom lines of hospitals and health systems across the country, it has also become clear that the continuum of care responsibilities are stretching beyond traditional boundaries and forging many new, and previously unimagined, collaborative partnerships. Health care delivery is now a community responsibility with growing emphasis on population health improvement.

With a few years of experience now under our belts, health care systems and providers are getting a better idea of what is expected of them by payers and consumers. Professional responsibility and quality improvement efforts are clearly tied to effective communication and coordination of care. Providers are now in a position to better identify gaps in quality, safety, and customer service; in turn allowing them to provide high-quality, cost-effective care on a consistent basis. The bottom line appears to be holding ourselves, and each other, accountable for every transaction of care. The formation of the Accountable Care Organization (ACO) fosters the concepts of providing quality, safe, financially secure care; as such fulfilling the ethical responsibility the AMA requires for practitioners.
