The Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA) released the third edition of its California Regional Health Care Cost & Quality Atlas, a key statewide source for comparative health care performance information. In its third release, the Atlas now includes over two dozen standardized measures of clinical quality, utilization and total cost of care such as preventive screenings, care for chronic conditions, member cost sharing, and hospital readmissions. Purchasers, providers, health plans and policymakers can access the online, publicly-available tool to compare the quality and cost of care provided to nearly 30 million Californians, or 75% of the state. The results released in the 2019 report show that when providers share in the risk through a capitation payment model, better value and health outcomes are achieved than with a fee-for-service model.
