Can Health Equity Be Achieved in America,
or is it a Pipe Dream?

This white paper takes a hard look at the evolving issue of achieving health equity in the US, which, as pointed out by the World Health Organization, is a fundamental human right. The questions this paper seeks to answer are these, “Is achieving sustained health equity in the US a pipe dream? Or can it actually become mainstream in America?” The issue at hand isn’t about whether we should, or even if we can. The answer is YES, we can achieve health equity (HE) in America; but, how, what would it take, and at what price?

Health Equity and Value-Based Care, Part 3: An Analysis of the Social Determinants of Health Landscape

In Part 3, we turn to a key issue in health equity: the social determinants of health (SDOH) that affect poor people much more than middle- and upper-class people.

Health Equity and Value-Based Care, Part 2: An Analysis of Health Equity and Value Based Care in the Safety Net

In this paper, we take a closer look at how safety-net providers are dealing with value-based care and how those efforts can help address inequities in the system.

Health Equity And Value-Based Care, Part 1: An Analysis of Access and Workforce Issues, And Government and Private-Sector Efforts to Improve Health Equity

The first part discusses health disparities, clinician workforce and access issues, social determinants of health (in brief), and government and private-sector efforts to improve health equity. In the second brief, we’ll take a deeper dive into the issues of safety-net providers, including FQHCs and rural and inner-city hospitals, and how they can participate in VBC initiatives. In the final installment of this series, we’ll explain why social determinants are so important, what is being done to address them, and how this could be a game changer for VBC.

Building An Effective Care Pathway for Multi-Visit Patients: The MVP Method

The MVP Method is a delivery system transformation strategy developed to deliver more effective care to patients experiencing a cycle of high utilization of the hospital or emergency department. Developed by Dr. Amy Boutwell, she drew from the best of what has worked for the most teams in the widest variety of settings based on her work over the past 12 years leading delivery system transformation initiatives to improve care and deliver value by reducing recurrent acute-care use. The MVP Method has been implemented by over 275 healthcare teams in 40 states, making it the most widely disseminated high utilizer strategy in the US.
