Update on Payment Reform Trends: Implications for California Community Health Centers
The Regional Associations of California (RAC), in collaboration with the California Primary Care Association (CPCA), recognize that payment reform is a critical ingredient for catalyzing and sustaining a transformed delivery system—a system that can realize the IHI’s Triple Aim goals of better health, better care, and reduced per capita costs. They also recognize that payment reform is evolving rapidly as health centers, health system stakeholders, researchers, and policymakers design, pilot, and implement new payment systems and innovative care models. RAC strives to ensure that California health centers’ state-level and local efforts in payment reform and delivery system transformation are informed by the most up-to-date information.
In September 2012, RAC engaged JSI to conduct a Payment Reform Research Update that included: a literature scan of key publications released over the recent 18 months on payment reform and delivery system transformation interviews with 18 national experts and representatives from cutting-edge efforts in Medicaid payment reform in other states; and identification by RAC leaders of key questions regarding payment reform efforts.
