Public Reporting of Quality Outcomes: What’s the Best Path Forward?
The Affordable Care Act aims to promote higher quality care in part by rewarding – and eventually requiring – the reporting of certain quality measures. Previous efforts suggest that public reporting can add significant value. Yet there are concerns about the best way to measure outcomes and quality, the possible unintended effects of public reporting, and whether purchasers and consumers actually use the information to make choices. Panelists at this April 27 briefing co-sponsored by the Alliance for Health Reform and The Commonwealth Fund discussed the nature of public reporting.
Speakers for this session:
The panel is moderated by Ed Howard of the Alliance for Health Reform and Anne-Marie Audet of The Commonwealth Fund.
