HHS Strategic Plan, Fiscal Years 2007–2012 (Strategic Plan). Strategic Objective 1.3: Improve health care quality, safety, cost, and value.

11/22/2015

In the future, American health care will be shaped into a system in which doctors and hospitals succeed by providing the best value for their patients. Value in health care means delivering the right health care to the right person, at the right time, for the right price. Providing reliable health care cost and quality information can empower consumer choice at all levels. Systemwide improvements can occur as providers and payers can track how their practice, service, or plan compares to others. As value in health care becomes transparent to consumers and providers alike, HHS anticipates the following benefits: Costs will stabilize; more people will acquire insurance; more people will get access to better health care; and economic competitiveness will be preserved. Ultimately, this is a prescription for a value-driven system—a prescription of good medicine that works for everyone. HHS will work to achieve this value-based system over the next 5 years.

Several HHS operating and staff divisions contribute to this goal of improving the quality, safety, cost and, ultimately, the value of health care, including AHRQ, AoA, CMS, FDA, HRSA, IHS, NIH, ONC, OPHS, and SAMHSA.

The performance indicators for this strategic objective, listed in full at the end of this chapter, measure:

  • Adoption of electronic health care records, which affect the long-term quality, value, and safety of health care;
  • Quality of care that residents receive in nursing home facilities; and
  • Number of States implementing specific approaches to improve the quality of Medicaid-funded health care, on which many low-income people depend.
