What Works: A series of thought leading reports from KPMG Global Healthcare

The need for change in healthcare is well understood. There is also an increasing consensus about what needs to be done to address these challenges:

  • a focus on quality, safety, controlling costs and improving population health 
  • a move from the emphasis being on the volume of treatment toward ensuring high-value care 
  • activist payers working with patients and providers to reshape the system
  • the development of new models of delivery including increasing convergence between healthcare payers, providers and the life sciences industry 
  • reaching out to patients and communities in new ways. 

The question is how to make these changes happen. We argue that there are a number of changes of both mind-set and capability that are required across a number of areas. These include: 

  • creating systems to drive clinical and operational excellence
  • developing new models for coordinated care and population health
  • growing the ability to contract for value 
  • creating new partnerships and networks.
