Additional State Health Reform Approaches
Examples from New York State to follow…
A structured approach to involving a
geographically defined community in an open public process designed to improve the availability, accessibility, and quality of healthcare services in their community as a means toward improving its health status.
Focus on community need over individual stakeholders’ priorities
Local input to state decision-making
Formed to review community need for new acute hospital beds in response to CON applications from 3 major health systems for 278 beds and facility modernization
Blue Ribbon Panel of Stakeholders: hospital trustees but not management, consumer, business, labor, regional representatives
The 3 CON applications reviewed as a “batch” rather than individually
Commission looked at the health care system regionally, not just from a single county perspective
Requested input from community, including providers, business, underserved, consumers
* Preliminary Goals
The triangle represents our agency’s role as a fulcrum—the point on which a lever pivots—boosting the community’s health by leveraging the strengths of all stakeholders. The fulcrum is also a point of equilibrium, reflecting our ability to balance the needs of consumers, providers and payers on complex health matters. The inner triangle also evokes the Greek letter delta—used in medical and mathematical contexts to represent change—with a forward lean as we work with our community to achieve positive changes in health care.
Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it,
and I shall move the world. —Archimedes
