In this episode of our podcast, Inside Health Care, NCQA Director of Communications, Matt Brock, spoke with Andrew Anderson, NCQA’s Phyllis Torda Health Care Quality Fellowship recipient. Anderson discusses his background and future plans, and how he learned about the Phyllis Torda Health Care Quality Fellowship.
Anderson, a PhD candidate at the University of Maryland, also discusses his new paper, ACO Affiliated Hospitals Increase Implementation of Care Coordination Strategies, which he recently co-authored and published in Medical Care. The Affordable Care Act provided incentives for hospitals, doctors and other providers to join ACOs and work together to deliver high-quality, coordinated care. Our findings suggest that ACO-affiliated hospitals increase the use of evidence-based care coordination strategies (e.g., predictive analytics, outreach after discharge, home visits). The paper informs the ongoing national conversation about ACO effectiveness.
