The LAN’s Clinical Episode Payment (CEP) Work Group held their virtual bi-weekly meeting on March 1 to review and provide feedback on maternity episode value options, such as decreased complications and mortality, and goals for population management, patient engagement and experience, and quality measurement. The Work Group discussed how patient engagement tools and quality measurement parameters can be used in maternity episode payment models. Work Group members shared examples of patient engagement tools currently being used by their and other organizations to measure maternity patient experience and engagement, and also discussed other innovative maternity care models such as the Strong Start for Mothers and Newborns Initiative and California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative.

To achieve the goal of better care, smarter spending, and healthier people, the U.S. health care system must substantially reform its payment structure to incentivize quality, health outcomes, and value over volume. The Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network (LAN) was established as a collaborative network of public and private stakeholders, including health plans, providers, patients, employers, consumers, states, federal agencies, and other partners within the health care community.
