Leading the way in innovation
Fairview Health Services is reforming health care delivery. Today, exciting and groundbreaking innovation, led by physicians and health care teams, is happening within Fairview. As a major health care provider, Fairview is in the best position—and has a responsibility—to reinvent the way care is delivered. Fairview has ambitious goals for this work: to improve quality, improve the patient experience and reduce the total cost of health care.

What it means to care for the health of a population
Last spring, Fairview Health Services stepped forward to take part in developing a new way to care for low-income adults, many with complex health diagnoses. This new structure, called a coordinated care delivery system (CCDS), hadn’t been done before in Minnesota. Fairview—as one of only four health care providers in Minnesota willing to take on this challenge—had only a few weeks to plan and prepare. Read on.
Change care, change experience, change payment
Overall, healthcare reform must make changes that improves quality, improves the patient experience and reduces cost. In order to achieve these goals, three critical changes need to occur:
- Change care to focus on the health of a population and deliver improved outcomes at a reduced cost.
- Change the experience of the individuals accessing the health care system and ensure the engagement of the patient/consumer to drive dramatically improved outcomes.
- Change payment to models that are aligned to enable new care models and reward providers for the value they produce (move from fee-for-service that rewards volume to global payment systems that reward value).
