What is Healthcare Reform?

According to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), health care reform consists of the following three focus areas known as the triple aim of healthcare:

  1. Improve patient experiences (satisfaction, quality and outcome)
  2. Decrease cost
  3. Improve population health

triple aim of healthcare

Many have predicted that in future years this will result in bundled payment/episodic care.

Therapists deserve a seat at that payment reform table and there are many more suitable options than what is being endorsed by the APTA and working its way through the AMA committee process.
