Despite a modest 3.9% rise in 2011, the United States continues to spend more on health care than any other industrialized nation. Many analysts believe a major reason health care spending is so much higher in the US is due to how care is paid for – in ways that reward the quantity of services over quality.
The California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF) announces a Sacramento briefing designed for legislative and executive branch staff and others interested in how we pay for care, as well as new payment models with the potential to deliver better value, such as accountable care organizations (ACOs). A second event on price transparency -- how much we pay -- is scheduled for Friday, October 25.
Suzanne Delbanco and Andréa Caballero, from Catalyst for Payment Reform, will present a scorecard on California payment reform efforts and progress toward value-oriented payment. Joy Grossman, from the Center for Studying Health System Change (HSC), will discuss ACO development in California by region.

The California Health Care Foundation (CHCF) is dedicated to advancing meaningful, measurable improvements in the way the health care delivery system provides care to the people of California, particularly those with low incomes and those whose needs are not well served by the status quo. We work to ensure that people have access to the care they need, when they need it, at a price they can afford. CHCF informs policymakers and industry leaders, invests in ideas and innovations, and connects with changemakers to create a more responsive, patient-centered health care system.
