We all deserve better care: high quality, safe, affordable health care. The right care at the right time for the right reason and at the right cost.
That's why we fought for so long for health reform and worked so hard to ensure the Affordable Care Act
gets implemented effectively.
Today, we're turning our attention from the corridors of Congress to the hallways of our nation's hospitals and doctors' practices, focusing primarily on real-world implementation in local communities.
At the Coalition for Better Care
, we believe that partnerships between patients and their health care providers must be at the center of a transformed health care system.
Patients and families have unique insights into their health and the health of their loved ones, and they need to be a part of the teams and the decision-making processes that affect their care.
We call this collaborative consumer engagement – and we are leading the effort to build these patient-provider partnerships into the new models of care made possible by the Affordable Care Act.
From the bedside to the board room, we believe our work will not only improve the care patients receive… it will also strengthen our entire health care system.
