The DRIVE Health Initiative is a campaign urging the government to take action to improve the value of health care in the U.S.
America spends more than any other country on health care, but ranks much lower on health outcomes when compared to developed countries. We are spending more to get less, and the costs are only going up.
Shifting the equation so that we’re getting better care at a lower cost requires the government to adopt value-based purchasing strategies that have been proven by the private sector to work. These strategies include financial incentives, competition, information transparency and consumer engagement.
Created by The ERISA Industry Committee (ERIC) and the Pacific Business Group on Health (PBGH), DRIVE Health is focused on urging President Trump’s administration and Congress to accelerate the transition to value-based payment and care models by implementing specific policies that are proven to improve care quality and reduce costs.
Value-Based Care Innovations
The move toward value-based care is succeeding in improving health care quality and slowing cost growth. Value-based care ensures: patients receive better care and make informed choices, providers are rewarded for delivering the best outcomes, purchasers are paying for what works, and businesses can invest in jobs and innovation.
