Healthcare innovation is an extremely hot topic right now, ranging from the new Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, FDA’s approach to approving therapies and devices, an entire issue of Health Affairs, [ and of course patient-centered medical homes and Accountable Care Organizations [Patient-centered medical homes are also known as Advanced Primary Care Model practices, and ACOs are a combination of delivery and reimbursement innovations.]Another way to view the benefits innovations have for patients and society is to examine how the adoption of an innovation produces indirect
changes in care delivery and reimbursements – some of which can be more significant than the innovation’s original change: New treatments can change how care is delivered, e.g., stents, (originally developed for urology), expanded the treatment options for clogged heart arteries from surgery to include outpatient invasive radiology procedures. Payment systems for specific illnesses have influenced the development of therapeutic options and care delivery infrastructure, e.g. low reimbursements for chemical dependency present barriers to R&D in that area, while high profit opportunities for cardiac rehab and obstetrics have prompted health systems to build new facilities for those conditions. ]
