Value Project Performance Improvement CoverAn HFMA Value Project Report

In a series of reports, HFMA's Value Project is exploring in greater detail the four value-driving capabilities defined in Value in Health Care: Current State and Future Directions.

This report, the third in the series, focuses on ways that providers can build a value-driving performance improvement capability within their organizations. It focuses on requirements for developing sustainable performance improvement, including:

  • A focus on process re-engineering, first within the hospital and then across the continuum of care
  • Identification and implementation of evidence-based best practices for clinical care
  • Increased patient engagement in maintaining health, managing chronic diseases, and achieving desired care outcomes
