Principles for Reproductive Health in Delivery System and Payment Reform

Public- and private-sector health systems are moving rapidly to reform how care is delivered and financed, with the goals of better care, better outcomes and lower costs. Improving women’s health care and outcomes should be a priority as new payment and care delivery models are designed, implemented and evaluated. A new set of principles drafted by national provider and advocacy groups, including the Guttmacher Institute, is intended to guide transformation so that it results in a seamless system that meets the full range of women’s health care needs. These principles are organized around five core topics: patient and provider engagement, access to care, access to providers, patient safeguards, and payments and investments.
