9 After-Hours Care and Emergency Room Use, Percent 100 Difficulty Getting After-Hours Care Without Going to the ER Used ER in Past Two Years Source: 2011 Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey of Sicker Adults in Eleven Countries.
10 Policy Implications 10 Insurance design matters Cost-sharing or lack of insurance create serious barriers to access to care Subsidies, exemptions, caps on OOP spending, and other protections for vulnerable populations are critical Having a primary care doctor does not ensure access at the time patients need care Difficulty getting same-day access and after-hours care translates into higher ER use
11 Care Coordination and Transitions 11
12 Coordination Problems in the Past Two Years, Percent AUS CAN FR GER NETH NZ NOR SWE SWIZ UK US Test results/ records not available at appointment and/or duplicate tests ordered Providers failed to share important information with each other Specialist did not have information about medical history and/or regular doctor not informed about specialist care Source: 2011 Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey of Sicker Adults in Eleven Countries.

Source: 2011 Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey of Sicker Adults in Eleven Countries.
14 Policy Implications 14 Greater interoperability of electronic health records is needed to ensure that information follows the patient Greater coordination is needed between primary care doctors and specialists to ensure quality and safety Gaps in care transitions between hospital and home can place patients at risk for adverse events and avoidable readmissions Lack of coordination is inefficient and costly to health systems Care systems need to be re-designed around patients and payment mechanisms are needed to promote system integration

Source: 2008 Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey of Sicker Adults.
22 Policy Implications 22 Chronically ill patients need to be further empowered and supported in self-management, including being given a plan to manage care at home Nurses and teams that support patients in self-management can contribute to better care and outcomes Lack of patient adherence is a concern and strategies, such as, more patient engagement in care decisions and ongoing support, are needed Failure to review all medications put patients at risk for potential drug interactions, duplicate prescriptions, hospital admissions, and less than optimally effective medication regimens
23 Primary Care Practice Infrastructure and Capacity for Improvement 23

Source: 2009 Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey of Primary Care Physicians.
27 Policy Implications 27 Enhancing capacity of EMRs, including greater decision support and increased interoperability, is needed to support clinicians in managing complex patients Use of performance data and feedback, patient satisfaction surveys, and structured quality improvement activities are key to enabling primary care practices to address deficiencies in care and improve patient experiences Financial incentives can be used as a tool for driving quality improvement and encouraging practices to provide additional services for complex patients

34 Policy Implications 34 Having a Medical Home a regular doctor who knows your medical history, can be easily reached during the day, and coordinates your care makes a difference Patients with a Medical Home report better doctor/patient relationship, care coordination, fewer medical errors, and rate the quality of their care higher Primary care redesign is central to improving health system performance
