Evolving the Regional Total Cost of Care Project and demonstrating preparedness for National Scalability

July 15, 2015 Press Release

The Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement (NRHI) today kicked off the second phase of a project designed to leverage healthcare cost data to reduce healthcare costs and improve care nationally. The grant-funded renewal project, Evolving the Regional Total Cost of Care Project and demonstrating preparedness for National Scalability (TCoC Phase II), is supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The goal of the 18 month project is to evolve Total Cost of Care Reporting and show preparedness for national scalability, including adding new regions, expanding toward Public Payer inclusion, and supporting existing and new stakeholders as leaders in the effort to reduce cost and improve quality.

As one of the original pilot sites, during Phase II Q Corp will continue to evolve and fine-tune cost reporting data as well as expand the use of the data. Q Corp and give other sites will work more closely with physicians to provide tools and reduce barriers toward implementing cost measurement and containment in their local practices. The TCoC Phase II teams, led by NRHI, will also develop strategies and actionable steps to educate and engage employers interested in reducing overall cost of care.
