Better Healthcare: Changes to Learn About Now

Better Healthcare: Changes to Learn About Now is a 16-page illustrated consumer guide to three broad initiatives aimed at improving the quality of care, empowering consumers, and limiting spending growth. The initiatives focus on

  1. paying providers for the quality of care they deliver, instead of just the quantity of care;
  2. putting more actionable information about providers, treatments, insurers and prices into consumers’ hands, so they can make better informed choices; and
  3. applying the digital information and social media revolutions to healthcare.
