|Following the Data|
|The draft white paper from the Population-Based Payment (PBP) Work Group, entitled Accelerating and Aligning Population-Based Payment Models: Data Sharing, outlines essential aspects of data sharing in PBP models. Sharing data is critical to supporting clinicians and health care stakeholder groups in providing care, responding effectively to patient needs, and enabling the transition to alternative payment models (APMs).
The paper offers several guiding principles and recommendations that highlight the future development of data sharing arrangements in PBP models. The paper also outlines use cases for data sharing which describe particular types of data sharing arrangements, in both their current and aspirational states. The goal is to create an environment where data follows the patient and is available to stakeholders (patients, providers, purchasers, and payers) in a timely manner.
Your input helps us refine these recommendations and better understand any key gaps or unintended consequences at the patient or system level. Note we are also planning to do a Work Group deep dive later this year on data infrastructure and sharing, and invite your comments to help us formulate that work. Please submit your comments online, through a discussion forum on Handshake (here are some instructions), or by email (email@example.com). The deadline for comment submission is Friday, July 1.
