|CMS Ramps up Data to Support Value-Based Payments|
Dec. 4, 2015
"Over the next few years, [CMS] will adopt a value-based payment policy as part of an unprecedented attempt at industry-wide delivery system reform. Yet, according to CMS Acting Administrator Andy Slavitt, none of it matters unless healthcare data helps providers deliver better care to patients.... Slavitt noted that ... some health plans don't provide them access to their data, or if data is provided it is through individual reports or portals that don't integrate with data on the rest of a provider's practice ... CMS is requiring commercial health plans that do business in the marketplace and in Medicare to make data that is valuable to providers or patients available in machine-readable form."
