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