Last week Kaiser Permanente Chairman and CEO Bernard J. Tyson joined President Obama, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell and business leaders for the White House launch of the Health
Care Payment Learning and Action Network. The network intends to further the framework established by the Affordable Care Act to move the U.S. health care system away from a payment model based on the quantity of care provided and toward one based on quality.
As part of the launch event, Kaiser Permanente committed to sharing important learnings based on the organization’s experience in providing value-based care to nearly 10 million Americans. Tyson said Kaiser Permanente would take an active role in helping create a process that mobilizes the health care industry to share best practices around value-based payments among participants.
