Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 168 / Friday, August 29, 2014 / Notices improve the quality of health care. This strategy has established six priorities that support a three-part aim focusing on better care, better health, and lower costs through improvement. The six priorities include: Making care safer by reducing harm caused by the delivery of care; ensuring that each person and family are engaged as partners in their care; promoting effective communication and coordination of care; promoting the most effective prevention and treatment practices for the leading causes of mortality, starting with cardiovascular disease; working with communities to promote wide use of best practices to enable healthy living; and making quality care more affordable for individuals, families, employers, and governments by developing and spreading new health care delivery models. Because the hospice survey focuses on experiences of care, implementation of the survey supports the following national priorities for improving care: Engaging patients and families in care and promoting effective communication and coordination. In addition, national implementation and public reporting of hospice survey results will provide data on experiences with hospice care that enable consumers to make meaningful comparisons between hospices across the nation.
