I too would like to hear more about the work from Dr. Weida and Team. Regarding data, there definitely is more data, the quality of data has improved somewhat, but the capabilities of the systems in use will require some modification to ensure they are providing a realistic and comprehensive capture of all activities by role and the supplies, equipment, facilities, etc. to most accurately identify costs. Current cost identification and management systems that roughly calculate and allocate costs may be adequate for scenarios where capitation is a smaller amount of reimbursement, but as it grows, more data will likely be required to capture the information. Capturing other clinical, quality of life, consumer return to/maintenance of productivity/lifestyle, consumer satisfaction, provider satisfaction, etc. outcomes will also be necessary to validate "value" from various stakeholders' perspectives as well as to guard against access to appropriate care concerns. Thank-you for the thoughtful post!
