Health Care Utilization and Cost Impacts of Delivery System Innovations: An Updated Review of the Evidence
This issue brief provides an updated review of the evidence about the impacts of delivery system interventions with a focus on outcomes related to health care utilization and costs. The original issue brief was provided in the fall of 2013 to recipients grant funding from the federal State Innovation Models (SIM) initiative. Since that time, the volume of research on the topic areas covered in the original brief has increased significantgly: The 2013 version of the brief included 38 sources; the revised version includes findings from 131 sources. An evidence review table accompanying the brief provides a scan of the evidence from these sources and is sortable by type of intervention, care setting, disease/condition, payer, age, and study duration.
This brief was prepared by SHADAC for the State Innovation Models (SIM) pgorgram under contract with NORC at the University of Chicago. SIM is funded by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI).
