The role of outcomes data in health care reform.
National symposium on using outcomes data to improve clinical practice : building on models from cardiac surgery. Keystone CO USA, 1994/06/06.
The major driver currently behind the health care reform movement is cost containment.
An important mechanism of cost containment will be the transferal of financial risk from third-party payers to care providers.
This places the risk for managing the care and the dollars at the site where the care is being delivered.
However, by the turn of the century, cost will no longer be the major driver.
The value or the performance of the health care plan will be the key issue.
Measures of performance and value include both quality of care and patient satisfaction.
