Care pathways, process improvements, safety initiatives, case managers, disease management and other overlays to the current structure are beneficial, but not sufficient 2012.03.26 VBHCD Core Concepts 4 Copyright © Michael Porter 2013 Creating The Right Kind of Competition • Patient choice and competition for patients are powerful forces to encourage continuous improvement in value and restructuring of care • But today’s competition in health care is not aligned with value Financial success of Patient system participants success • Creating positive-sum competition on value for patients is fundamental to health care reform in every country 2012.03.26 VBHCD Core Concepts 5 Copyright © Michael Porter 2013 Principles of Value-Based Health Care Delivery • The overarching goal in health care must be value for patients, not access, cost containment, convenience, or customer service Value = Health outcomes Costs of delivering the outcomes – Outcomes are the full set of health results for a patient’s condition over the care cycle – Costs are the total costs of care for a patient’s condition over the care cycle 2012.02.29 UK Plenary Session 6 Copyright © Michael Porter 2011 Creating a Value-Based Health Care Delivery System The Strategic Agenda 1. Organize Care into Integrated Practice Units (IPUs) around Patient Medical Conditions − Organize primary and preventive care to serve distinct patient segments 2. Measure Outcomes and Cost for Every Patient 3. Reimburse through Bundled Prices for Care Cycles 4. Integrate Care Delivery Across Separate Facilities 5. Expand Geographic Coverage by Excellent Providers 6. Build an Enabling Information Technology Platform 2012.03.26 VBHCD Core Concepts 7 Copyright © Michael Porter 2013 Source: Porter, Michael E., Clemens Guth, and Elisa Dannemiller, The West German Headache Center: Integrated Migraine Care, Harvard Business School Case 9-707-559, September 13, 2007 Primary Care Physicians Inpatient Treatment and Detox Units Outpatient Psychologists Outpatient Physical Therapists Outpatient Neurologists Imaging Centers Existing Model: Organize by Specialty and Discrete Services 1.

Organized around the patient medical condition or set of closely related conditions (or patient segment in primary care) 2. Involves a dedicated, multidisciplinary team who devotes a significant portion of their time to the condition 3. Providers involved are members of or affiliated with a common organizational unit 4. Takes responsibility for the full cycle of care for the condition − Encompassing outpatient, inpatient, and rehabilitative care as well as supporting services (e.g. nutrition, social work, behavioral health) 5. Incorporates patient education, engagement, and follow-up as integral to care 6. Utilizes a single administrative and scheduling structure 7. Co-located in dedicated facilities 8. Care is led by a physician team captain and a care manager who oversee each patient’s care process 9. Measures outcomes, costs, and processes for each patient using a common information platform 10. Providers function as a team, meeting formally and informally on a regular basis to discuss patients, processes and results 11. Accepts joint accountability for outcomes and costs 2012.03.26 VBHCD Core Concepts 12 Copyright © Michael Porter 2012 Volume in a Medical Condition Enables Value • Volume and experience will have an even greater impact on value in an IPU structure than in the current system Better Results, Adjusted for Risk Rapidly Accumulating Experience Rising Process Efficiency Better Information/ Clinical Data More Tailored Facilities Rising Capacity for Sub-Specialization More Fully Dedicated Teams Faster Innovation Greater Patient Volume in a Medical Condition Improving Reputation Costs of IT, Measurement, and Process Improvement Spread over More Patients Wider Capabilities in the Care Cycle, Including Patient Engagement The Virtuous Circle of Value Greater Leverage in Purchasing Better utilization of capacity 2012.3.1_Book Launch_Redefining German Health Care_Porter_Guth 13 Copyright © Michael Porter 2012 Role of Volume in Value Creation Fragmentation of Hospital Services in Sweden Source: Compiled from The National Board of Health and Welfare Statistical Databases – DRG Statistics, Accessed April 2, 2009.

Reimbursing through Bundled Prices for Care Cycles Bundled reimbursement for medical conditions Fee for service Bundled Price • A single price covering the full care cycle for an acute medical condition • Time-based reimbursement for overall care of a chronic condition • Time-based reimbursement for primary/preventive care for a defined patient segment Global capitation 2012.01.11_VBHCD_Reimbursement 22 Copyright © Michael Porter 2012 • Components of the bundle • Currently applies to all relatively healthy patients (i.e. ASA scores of 1 or 2) • The same referral process from PCPs is utilized as the traditional system • Mandatory reporting by providers to the joint registry plus supplementary reporting • Applies to all qualifying patients. Provider participation is voluntary, but all providers are continuing to offer total joint replacements • The Stockholm bundled price for a knee or hip replacement is about US $8,000 - Pre-op evaluation - Lab tests - Radiology - Surgery & related admissions - Prosthesis - Drugs - Inpatient rehab, up to 6 days - All physician and staff fees and costs - 1 follow-up visit within 3 months - Any additional surgery to the joint within 2 years - If post-op infection requiring antibiotics occurs, guarantee extends to 5 years Bundled Payment in Practice Hip and Knee Replacement in Stockholm, Sweden 2011.09.03 Comprehensive Deck 23 Copyright © Michael Porter 2011 4.

Choose an overall scope of services where the provider system can achieve excellence in value 2. Rationalize service lines / IPUs across facilities to improve volume, better utilize resources, and deepen teams 3. Offer specific services at the appropriate facility – Based on medical condition, acuity level, resource intensity, cost level, need for convenience – E.g., shifting routine surgeries to smaller, more specialized facilities 4. Clinically integrate care across units and facilities using an IPU structure – Integrate services across the care cycle – Integrate preventive/primary care units with specialty IPUs There are major value improvements available from concentrating volume by medical condition and moving care out of heavily resourced hospital, tertiary and quaternary facilities Four Levels of Provider System Integration 2012.3.1_Book Launch_Redefining German Health Care_Porter_Guth 25 Copyright © Michael Porter 2012 Leading Providers • Grow areas of excellence across geography: − Hub and spoke expansion of satellite pre- and post-acute services − Affiliations with community providers to extend the reach of IPUs • Increase the volume of patients in medical conditions or primary care segments vs. widening service lines locally, or adding new broad line units Community Providers • Affiliate with excellent providers in more complex medical conditions and patient segments in order to access expertise, facilities and services to enable high value care − New roles for rural and community hospitals 5.

Building an Enabling Information Technology Platform Utilize information technology to enable restructuring of care delivery and measuring results, rather than treating it as a solution itself • Common data definitions • Combine all types of data (e.g. notes, images) for each patient • Data encompasses the full care cycle, including care by referring entities • Allow access and communication among all involved parties, including with patients • Templates for medical conditions to enhance the user interface • “Structured” data vs. free text • Architecture that allows easy extraction of outcome measures, process measures, and activity-based cost measures for each patient and medical condition • Interoperability standards enabling communication among different provider (and payor) organizations 2012.03.26 VBHCD Core Concepts 28 Copyright © Michael Porter 2013 A Mutually Reinforcing Strategic Agenda Organize into Integrated Practice Units Measure Outcomes and Cost For Every Patient Move to Bundled Prices for Care Cycles Integrate Care Delivery Across Separate Facilities Grow Excellent Services Across Geography Build an Enabling IT Platform 29 Copyright © Michael Porter 2011 Creating a Value-Based Health Care Delivery System Implications for Physician Leaders • Lead multidisciplinary teams, not specialty silos • Become an expert in measurement and process improvement • Proactively develop new bundled reimbursement options and care guarantees • Champion value enhancing rationalization, relocation, and integration with sister hospitals, as well as between inpatient and outpatient units, instead of protecting turf • Create networks and affiliations to expand high-value care outside the local area • Become a champion for the right EMR systems, not an obstacle to their adoption and use 1. Integrated Practice Units (IPUs) 4. Integrate Across Separate Facilities 3. Move to Bundled Prices 5. Expand Excellence Across Geography 6. Enabling IT Platform 2. Measure Cost and Outcomes
