THE NEXT FIVE YEARS — Farzad Mostashari is a data guy. He founded New York City's Primary Care Information Project under Mayor Michael Bloomberg and served as the national coordinator for health information technology under President Obama. Better data leads to better health outcomes, empowering both physicians and patients to make better decisions, or so the thinking goes. But when his mother needed knee surgery a few years back, Mostashari admitted Tuesday, he was at a loss. “I couldn’t figure out where I would find — how I would find — data on who is the best knee guy in Boston,” he said during a conference about what health care will look like in 2021, hosted by the New York State Health Foundation and the United Hospital Fund. The surgery did not go well and his mother suffered from a series of complications. Now, in minutes, he can compare complication rates of surgeons in his area. What he came to learn, he said, was that the surgeon he chose had performed 84 knee operations the previous year and had twice the complication rate of the surgeon who performed 583 surgeries. “I took her to the wrong surgeon,” he said. The data available now has led to transformational change that is likely to shape how health care is delivered in the next five years. But equally profound, he said, is that the payment models are finally encouraging doctors to make the best use of the data. Read my full story here: http://politi.co/1O3gw7u
MY LITTLE RANT — There is a growing clamor for an Uber for health care, and what people often mean is something that disrupts the entire business model. During the conference, Jeff Kraut, an executive with Northwell Health, and Karen Ignagni, CEO of EmblemHealth both made a point that bears repeating: Be careful what you wish for. Uber makes money on surge pricing. It’s a great option for the middle class and only works in areas where the supply of drivers roughly equals the demand for rides. That’s not how a health care delivery system works. If you want health care that is always available and charges more when it’s an emergency, we already have that. It’s called the emergency room.
