16 16 MARGARET E. O’KANE – COMMONWEALTH FUND BRIEFING JANUARY 14, 2007 THE IMPACT OF IMPROVEMENT: What is the System Supposed to Do? A value-based health care system 20% of people generate 80% of costs A: Move people from right to left—and keep them there Healthy/ Low Risk At- Risk High Risk Active Disease Health care spending Early Symptoms Source: HealthPartners

17 17 MARGARET E. O’KANE – COMMONWEALTH FUND BRIEFING JANUARY 14, 2007 PROMOTE WELLNESS The primary function of the health care system is to cure illness k eep people healthy We must re-emphasize primary care The “medical home” needs to be further defined and promoted The patient needs to be activated
