We Can Change Healthcare for the Better
The New Mexico Coalition for Healthcare Value brings together purchasers, employers, physicians, healthcare systems and hospitals, consumers and state leaders to create change in the healthcare system in order to benefit the people of New Mexico.
Performance Measurement and Public Reporting: Researching and publicly reporting on healthcare performance indicators (such as HEDIS) helps employers assess, compare and select quality-level health plans for their employees.
Quality Improvement: Providing best practice and evidence-based information to help healthcare providers identify and implement techniques and protocols to improve patient care while lowering costs.
High Value Outcome-Focused Payment Reform: Involving employers and purchasers to improve the healthcare payment system by exploring and evaluating ways to pay doctors and hospitals using quality models of care to improve patient outcomes.
Healthcare issues were formerly centered on access and cost. The Coalition has gotten quality on the table in New Mexico.” --Nurse Leader
