prevention of breast cancer, heart disease, obesity Midwives and the Triple Aim population health "Midwife-led care confers benefits and shows no adverse outcomes. It should be the norm for women classified at low and high risk of complications." - Hatem 2008 outcomes "women assigned to group care were significantly less likely to have preterm births compared with those in standard care...Effects were strengthened for African-American women." - Ickovics 2007 disparities experience of care source: ACNM http://www.flickr.com/photos/differentview/6157264842/sizes/z/in/photostream/ per-capita cost high cost of cesareans
Commercial $18,329 vs $27,866
Medicaid $9,131 vs $13,590 concentration in facility fees
59-66% of total payments covered facility fees rising costs 50% increase in last decade 4-fold increase in out-of-pocket (-Truven Health Analytics 2013) A lot of it is not really working... Regarding EHRs
"We’ve not achieved the productivity and quality benefits that are unquestionably there for the taking,” - Arthur Kellerman, RAND Study Author

Regarding Patient-Centered Medical Homes
"In our study...we found no association between PCMH processes and patient experience." - Martsolf 2012

Regarding Shared Decision Making
"Barriers to shared decision making included overworked physicians, insufficient provider training, and clinical information systems incapable of prompting or tracking patients through the decision-making process." - Friedman 2013 "Disruptive Innovation" "The task of building a truly patient-centric health care system brings with it a transfer of power that will uproot the established order from the exam room to the boardroom." - Michael Millenson

"The only way to make health care cost a lot less money is to do it better. Way better. For everyone." - Joe Flower http://www.flickr.com/photos/45128746 $3.5 billion $27 billion http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/newsdesk/2011/05/atul-gawande-harvard-medical-school-commencement-address.html#ixzz2MTVnyz8q "We’re all specialists now—even primary-care doctors. A structure that prioritizes the independence of all those specialists will have enormous difficulty achieving great care."
- Atul Gawande whole-person care
personal clinician provides first contact, continuous, comprehensive care
care is coordinated or integrated across the health care system
team-based care positive deviance = high quality, high-value care DISRUPTIVE DEVIANT Key Recommendations: keep being disruptive, positive deviants - we're good at that!
shore up care coordination and teamwork practices
collect, track, and report data
build toward a high-quality, integrated, midwife-led primary maternity care system References: Friedberg, M. W., Van Busum, K., Wexler, R., Bowen, M., & Schneider, E. C. (2013).
