Fireside Chat: "Dr. Right: The Clinical Imperative of Patient-Provider Matching"
How do you select the "right" physician for a patient? As any referring physician will tell you, this is not a simple answer. From volume to outcomes, ratings to relationships, eligibility to availability, there is no shortage of considerations when trying to make the best match. Unfortunately, the inherent complexity in the referral decision-making process all-too-frequently leads us to fall short, both clinically and economically. In this session, hear Harvard economist Amitabh Chandra discuss the consequences of poor clinical matching and how optimizations in referrals processes can not only decrease costs, but save lives.

"Public Reporting as a Catalyst for Better Consumer Decisions"
Greater efficiency in the process of matching patients to appropriate providers is vital to achieving the Triple Aim. As patients research and choose among appropriate providers, sound decision-making will depend on the accessibility of high-quality data that enables them to make meaningful, actionable comparisons. Online public-reporting tools, such as those published by U.S. News, CMS and others, serve as venues for consumer decision-making. Driven by current trends in data transparency, rapid advances in public reporting can be anticipated. This presentation will outline several recent and expected future developments in the evolution of key public-reporting tools, and discuss their role in facilitating patient engagement and access to appropriate care.
