Better, Smarter, Healthier: Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network kick off to advance value and quality in health care

Dept. of Health & Human Services
Over 2,800 patients, insurers, providers, states, consumer groups, employers and other partners have registered; dozens have set goals that meet or exceed HHS’s goals
The Affordable Care Act established an ambitious new framework to move our health care system away from rewarding health providers for the quantity of care they provide and toward rewarding quality. These new models have been put to work in Medicare, and have contributed to 50,000 fewer patient deaths in hospitals due to avoidable harms, such as infections or medication errors, and 150,000 fewer preventable hospital readmissions since 2010, when the Affordable Care Act became law.
To engage private sector leaders in building on this success, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell was joined today by President Obama, as well as state representatives, insurers, providers, business leaders, and consumers at the White House to kick off the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network (“Network”). More than 2,800 payers, providers, employers, patients, states, consumer groups, consumers and other partners have registered to participate in the Network. Today’s inaugural meeting of the Network is being lived streamed at www.whitehouse.gov/live.
