Lower Costs, Better Care- Reforming Our Health Care Delivery

The Affordable Care Act includes tools to improve the quality of health care that can also lower costs for taxpayers and patients. This means avoiding costly mistakes and readmissions, keeping patients healthy, rewarding quality instead of quantity, and building on the health information technology infrastructure that enables new payment and delivery models to work. These reforms and investments will build a health care system that will ensure quality care for generations to come.
