QualityPath® DESIGNATES QUALITY DOCTORS TO CHANGE HEALTH CARE ‘WHERE WE LIVE AND WORK’
A Regional Approach to Moving Health Care Forward
The Alliance aimed to create a program that was affordable and accessible for patients in both urban and rural settings.
“For health care to pull itself out of the swamp, everybody needs to change,” DeMars said. “In QualityPath, everyone agrees to do something different.”
Rewards for each group are built into the process:
- Doctors and hospitals that participate in QualityPath will be rewarded with a higher volume of patients.
- Employers that purchase health care will benefit from savings on a per-episode basis and better outcomes for employees.
- Patients will be rewarded with lower out-of-pocket costs, personalized assistance, guidance that helps them avoid unnecessary care and clear information about high-quality providers.
“Real change has to happen close to home, where most people go for care,” DeMars said. “By identifying, nurturing and rewarding high-value care in our marketplace, we truly are changing health care where we live and work.”
