Title III. Improving the Quality and Efficiency of Health Care
Rewarding the Highest Quality of Care
The Act rewards the highest quality of care for America’s seniors. It provides incentives for doctors, and hospitals that improve quality while providing for better coordination that helps to reduce harmful medical errors and healthcare-acquired infections.
It will provide innovative payment reforms so providers are rewarded for the quality of care they provide, rather than just additional tests or treatments. And it rewards innovative practices where doctors and nurse practitioners provide more primary care that is coordinated with every doctor or specialist involved with a patient’s care.
Doctors, nurses and hospitals throughout the country will be able to learn from these innovative practices to improve the quality of care for seniors throughout the Nation.
