  15. BUSINESS IMPACT/IMPLICATIONS Impact of reform on providers • Focus on evidence-based best practices/ process improvement • Quality incentives drive additional payment • Capture, evaluate, communicate data on your own performance • Explore new models for care delivery structured around shared incentives • Consider expanded industry services • Data and registries, care pathways, etc.

  16. BUSINESS IMPACT/IMPLICATIONS Impact of reform on payers and care management groups • Focus on coordinating care across providers and sites of service • Short and longer-term outcomes • Consider proactive approach to developing new care delivery models (e.g., ACOs) in key regions • De-identified clinical/claims data becomes critical asset • Resource for CER • Platform for enhanced product offerings
