1 The Alternative Quality Contract (AQC): Improving Quality While Slowing Spending Growth Dana Gelb Safran, ScD Senior Vice President, Performance Measurement and Improvement Presented at: MAHQ 16 April 2015 Context for AQC Development 2 1

2 Economic Imperative in a Global Economy Average spending on health per capita ($US PPP) Total expenditures on health as percent of GDP Source: OECD Health Data 2011 (Nov. 2011). 3 The increasing cost of health care in MA compared to other public spending priorities STATE BUDGET, FY2001 VS. FY2014 (BILLIONS OF DOLLARS) FY2001 FY2014 +$5.4 B (+37%) -$3.6 B (-17%) -12% -22% -31% -14% -11% -51% -13% Health Coverage (State Employees/GIC; Medicaid/Health Reform) Public Health Mental Health Education Infrastructure/ Housing Human Services Local Aid Public Safety Source: Health Policy Commission, 2013 Cost Trends Report, data from the Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center Proprietary and Confidential Do Not Distribute without Permission 4 2

3 The Alternative Quality Contract: Twin goals of improving quality and slowing spending growth In 2007, leaders at BCBSMA challenged the company to develop a new contract model that would improve quality and outcomes while significantly slowing the rate of growth in health care spending. 18% 16% 15.9% The Massachusetts health reform law (2006) caused a bright light to shine on the issue of unrelenting double-digit increases in health care spending growth (Health Care Reform II). 14% 12% 10% 8% 6% 4% 2% 8.2% 13.1% 13.8% 12.1% 13.3% 12.5% 12.8% 10.7% 10.8% 0% -2% BCBSMA Medical Trend Workers' Earnings General Economic Growth Sources: BCBSMA, Bureau of Labor Statistics. 5 The AQC Model 6 3

4 The Alternative Quality Contract Global Budget Population-based budget covers full care continuum Health status adjusted Based on historical claims Shared risk (2-sided) Trend targets set at baseline for multi-year Quality Incentives Ambulatory and hospital Significant earning potential Nationally accepted measures Continuum of performance targets for each measure (good to great) Long-Term Contract 5-year agreement Sustained partnership Supports ongoing investment and commitment to improvement 7 AQC Measure Set for Performance Incentives PROCESS OUTCOME AMBULATORY Preventive screenings Acute care management Chronic care management Depression Diabetes Cardiovascular disease Control of chronic conditions Diabetes Cardiovascular disease Hypertension HOSPITAL Evidence-based care elements for: Heart attack (AMI) Heart failure (CHF) Pneumonia Surgical infection prevention Post-operative complications Hospital-acquired infections Obstetrical injury Mortality (condition specific) PATIENT EXPERIENCE EMERGING ***Triple weighted*** Access, Integration Communication, Whole-person care Discharge quality, Staff responsiveness Communication (MDs, RNs) Up to 3 measures on priority topics for which measures lacking 8 4

5 Performance Payment Model: Updated (2011) As quality improves, provider share of surplus increases/deficit decreases Quality Performance Incentive Provider Share of Surplus (increases as quality improves) Provider Share of Deficit (decreases as quality improves) 70% 80% Linking Quality and Efficiency The 2011 AQC ensures that providers have a strong incentive to focus on both objectives. 55% 40% 20% PMPM Performance Score PMPM Quality Dollars The 2011 AQC also allows groups to earn PMPM quality dollars regardless of their budget surplus or deficit. High quality groups earn more PMPM quality dollars. 9 AQC Results: The First Four Years 10 5

The third score reflects the extent to which providers helped adults with serious chronic illness achieve optimal clinical outcomes. Linking provider payment to outcome measures has been one of the AQC s pioneering achievements. 12 6

7 AQC Results: Formal Evaluation Findings Source: Song Z, et al. Changes in Health Care Spending and Quality 4 Years into Global Payment. The New England Journal of Medicine Total Cost Results In Year 3, we met our goal of cutting trend in half. By 2012, AQC trend was 1.3% and declining. AQC Total Cost Trend 15% 10% Pre AQC Trend 5% 0% MA State Benchmark (3.6%) AQC Trend (1.2%) 14 7

8 Five Keys Ingredients to AQC Success 1 2 Financial Measures. The measures are nationally accepted as clinically appropriate so there is wide support for improving performance on these indicators. Incentives. Real dollars are at stake for improvement. Targets. For each measure, there is a range of performance targets 3 representing a continuum from good care to outstanding care, so the model rewards both performance and performance improvement. 4 Data, Reports, Advice. Dynamic/actionable data and reports made available daily, monthly and quarterly, helping organizations to identify efficiency opportunities at a patient, practice and organizational level. Leadership. Each group has strong engaged leadership driving 5 to success on integrating care, significantly improving quality and reducing costs. 15 AQC Support & Improvement Analytics 16 8

9 Components of the AQC Support Model Our four-pronged support model is designed to help provider groups succeed in the AQC. Data and Actionable Reports Consultative Support Best Practice Sharing and Collaboration Training and Educational Programming 17 Data and Actionable Reports We distribute reports that can be used to help organizations recognize opportunities, develop goals and measure their success. Daily Daily Census, Discharge, PCP Referrals and Inpatient & Outpatient Authorization Reports Weekly New Member Report ED Utilization Report Monthly AQC Member Call Tracking Grid Monthly Ambulatory Quality Report Monthly AQC Ambulatory Quality Measures Group Comparison Report Chronic Condition Opportunities Report Quality Diabetic Composite Score Bi-Monthly Case Management Report Quarterly Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions Report AQC Financial Dashboard Non-Emergent ED Report Top 100 Rx Report Bi-Annually Practice Pattern Variation Report Episode Treatment Groups (ETG) Practice Pattern Variation Report Emergency Department Use for Specific Conditions Annually Readmission Report AQC Ambulatory Quality Measures Score/Results AQC Hospital Quality Measures Score/Results Recurring Cost and Use Report Site of Service Report 18 9

Staffing Models Approaches to Patient Engagement Data Systems & Health Information Technology Referral Relationships & Integration Across Settings 20 10

11 Local & National Context 21 Key Affordability / Cost-Related Developments in Massachusetts Health reform passes (Ch. 58) Begins path to near universal coverage Much of Chapter 58 enacted, e.g.: MassHealth expansion Commonwealt h Care Consumer affordability schedule New health plan options for young adults Employer Fair Share Cost Containment Part 1 (Ch. 305) passes Increased transparency about cost drivers Reports on health insurer and hospital reserves Special Commission on Payment Reform Recommends move to global payment Government reports and hearings on cost drivers Governor rejects small group premiums Cost Containment Part 2 (Ch. 288) passes Aims to control premiums for small business, individuals Governor Patrick files payment reform legislation Payment Reform (Ch. 224) passes - Sets health care cost growth target at state GDP - Requires public payers (Medicaid, GIC, Connector) to transition to alternative payment models - Establishes ACO licensing process - Increased transparency of health care prices for patients 22 11

12 Impact of the AQC on Medicare spending and quality These results make it clear: There is no free lunch. There may be free chips or fruit salad, but if you want the lunch, you have to come to the table.
