Quality Driven Healthcare:

The Call for Change

Healthcare organizations have been trying for years to improve patient outcomes and become economically successful in a value-based payment system. They’ve tested various methods for achieving value following the guide of the Triple Aim1, but a recent report2 on the progress of value-based payments suggests healthcare organizations are falling short of goal. Half of U.S. healthcare payments were supposed to be value-based by 2018, but that number has been stalled at about 30 percent for the past two years, indicating healthcare organizations and their leaders have struggled to find the right formula to balance improved care quality with costs.

A major cause is the disconnect between management expectations and workforce readiness to deliver high-quality care. That’s why the National Association for Healthcare Quality (NAHQ) and the Accountable Care Learning Collaborative (ACLC), two organizations that share a common mission to build workforce and organizational competencies to improve healthcare, believe healthcare leaders can boost their results with a quality improvement growth strategy that is better integrated with their workforces. Specifically, trained, certified quality professionals provide a built-in solution to deliver improved care and financial outcomes.
