Leading the Conversation: Value-Based Care

Medical Alley: Leading the Conversation in Value-Based Care gathers leaders from healthcare delivery, payment, and technology to discuss and debate one of the most critical issues to improving the United State's health care system: value-based care.

The need for change is established and the barriers to change have been discussed, debated, and dissented for years.

Value in healthcare has often been defined as outcomes for a given unit of cost. This simple on face concept has driven thousands of discussions, debates, and business decisions with the goal of improving value for the healthcare customer (AKA, the patient, the consumer). The passage of the Affordable Care Act was supposed to presage the shift from volume to value in the U.S. but given the discussions we all continue to have it is not clear if we have made progress.
