Listen as Elizabeth Mitchell, LAN Guiding Committee member and President and CEO of the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement (NRHI), hosts a LAN webinar to discuss the importance of data availability and the obstacles associated with creating an effective data infrastructure when implementing alternative payment models. During this webinar, panelists discuss two real-world data infrastructure approaches that illustrate the value of data availability in providing benefits to stakeholders. Mylia Christensen describes how her institution, Oregon Health Care Quality Corporation, utilizes regional collaboratives comprised of health care leaders in Oregon to build a strong foundation of accessible data based on fundamental transparency, trust, and standardization of methods and metrics. David Kendrick of MyHealth Access Network shares the critical success factors his institution believes are necessary for providers and payers to succeed in Quality Payment Programs and APMs. He also presents concrete examples of successful data measurement, calculation, and distribution methods. The presenters address questions from participants on topics such as laws regarding the distribution of sensitive patient data, the nuances of sharing practice-identified data, and how both institutions received funding for their data infrastructure initiatives.


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.
