The Quality Landscape and Stakeholders in the Changing Environment

In our current health care environment, there is an increasing drive to measure the quality of care and align measures for improved population health, patient experience, and costs of care

  • Stakeholders face increasing impact from established quality measurement programs, to varying degrees
  • The federal government is aligning measures for improved population health, patient experience, and costs of care
  • Quality measurement programs are synchronizing measures so that physicians, hospitals, ACOs, and health plans are working together to improve performance in the same areas (eg, readmissions)
  • Integrated Delivery Systems play an integral role in these programs, either as a participant with an accountable entity (eg, plans and ACOs) or as their stakeholder (eg, hospitals and physicians) participating with the quality measurement programs

As all stakeholders are becoming increasingly accountable for quality, Amgen is working to partner with key stakeholders in this health care landscape to support patient care
