Cutler, Population Health and Health Policy


In 2011, the Maine Health Access Foundation (MeHAF) launched its Advancing Payment Reform initiative to stimulate innovative payment and delivery system reform strategies in Maine. This policy paper reports on the health data experience of the 14 program grantees, using interviews conducted in 2013-14 and other information garnered from the evaluation of the initiative. The paper focuses on the role and impact of health data in supporting implementation and monitoring of specific components of the projects’ reform strategies; the data infrastructure challenges the projects have faced and how those have been addressed; and the generalizable lessons learned so far for improving data usefulness, access, analysis, and integration to support payment and delivery system reform.

Support for this policy paper was provided by the Maine Health Access Foundation.
