In April of 2016, the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) issued its comprehensive Measures That Matter report, recommending a strategy to better achieve the Triple Aim of better patient care, better health outcomes and lower costs.
“We are in the era of over-measurement in health care,” said Patrick O’Shaughnessy, DO, CHS's executive vice president and system chief medical officer, who is a member of the HANYS Statewide Steering Committee on Quality Initiatives. “We need to unify around a focused and universal set of evidence-based outcome indicators across all payers. Then we can dedicate resources to track and monitor progress and make investments to do the actual work of improving care.”
