Action For Better Healthcare » Finally a roadmap for a coordinated approach to patient care

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) released their long anticipated regulations dealing with ten pages of the 2,200-page March 2010 Affordable Care Act. Those ten pages are really the crux of what healthcare reform is all about and it is to improve the way we provide healthcare in this country. 

Although these regulations required another 400 plus pages of explanation at least patients, families and caregivers now have an “expectation roadmap” outlining how the care they receive can be better. For the first time we have clear-cut targets to help us successfully achieve two-thirds of the triple aim – improving the quality of care and improving  patient/family satisfaction with their care. The third part of the triple aim, monetary savings, should occur as a byproduct of the above clinical improvements. 

Many doctors, nurses and others I talk with find the proposed regulations overwhelming and confusing. But remember, CMS is looking to us now for suggestions on how the recommendations can be improved before they become final. So be sure to contribute your comments.
