Providers will be re­warded for qual­ity, ac­count­abil­ity

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing the re­cent ar­ti­cle “GE will steer work­ers to North­west­ern Memo­rial for hip and knee surg­eries” (Mod­ern­Health­, Nov. 29), this agree­ment makes em­i­nent sense, as do the many oth­ers across this coun­try be­ing shaped by hos­pi­tals and clin­i­cians with em­ploy­ers. This is the way for­ward for the best providers that are trans­par­ent and out­comes-driven. They will be well re­warded over time with in­creased vol­ume, not only by other pur­chasers fol­low­ing suit, but also by a pub­lic that is seek­ing the best in care.

It’s just one more ex­am­ple of the power of ac­count­abil­ity, which, in turn, is driven by a cul­ture fo­cused on out­comes and high per­for­mance. Martin Di­a­mond
