Medicaid Finance, Delivery, and Payment System Reform

Policy makers are seeking ways to transform the delivery, payment, and financing of healthcare to improve health outcomes, improve efficiency, and build sustainable programs. Governments are using the tools developed and honed by the private sector to accomplish this, including expanding capitated managed care, developing reimbursement strategies that reward quality, identifying additional federal dollars to invest in public healthcare programs, and using data analytics to target areas or populations for improvement.
