This transformation would change American healthcare from an overly expensive and error-prone system to a value-based system that supports and rewards high-quality — effective, efficient, safe, timely and affordable care.
This can only be accomplished using a “high-fidelity” healthcare model that offers financial incentives and health information technologies to collaborative networks of practitioners, researchers, patients/consumers, and health plans that focus on reducing healthcare costs and improving outcomes through:
- Continual learning and knowledge-building
- Advanced decision-support and information-sharing
- The use of evolving evidence-based guidelines
- Integrated, coordinated, multidisciplinary care.
