10 Ways To Improve Patient Care

Innovative Ideas to Improve Patient Care

While there remains a significant gulf between the Right and the Left on health care reform, we believe there is opportunity to find common ground. Our health policy team is developing policy ideas that cut waste in health care by removing one of the prime drivers of it: obstacles to quality patient care.

This approach directly improves the patient experience—when patients stay healthy, or get better quicker, they need less care. Our proposals come from innovative ideas pioneered by health care professionals and organizations, and show how to scale successful pilots from red and blue states. Together, they make cutting waste a policy agenda instead of a mere slogan.

Each policy report includes several accompanying tools—from economic modeling to a catalog of local organizations that are leading the effort to make patient-centered changes across the country.
