8. Structure payment to reward continuous learning and improvement in the provision of best care at lower cost.
Public and private payers should move to outcome and value-oriented models of payment that draw on payment incentives.
9. Increase transparency on healthcare system performance
Public and private payers should promote transparency in quality, value and outcomes to aid care decisions.
10. Expand commitment to the goals of a "continuously learning" healthcare system.
Healthcare organizations should "develop organizational cultures that support and encourage continuous improvement, the use of best practices, transparency, open communication, staff empowerment, coordination, teamwork, and mutual respect and align rewards accordingly," the authors wrote.
