Reforming our nation’s health care system is an economic and moral imperative that is long overdue. The COVID-19 pandemic has only further illustrated its deficiencies and made clear the vital importance of a high-value health system capable of responding to the needs of US citizens.
While there have been meaningful improvements in healthcare delivery over the last decade, they have not catalyzed the transformation necessary to advance health value and equity. The promulgation of health policy and the implementation of new alternative payment models have created a landscape for experimentation in value-based care, yet the seismic shift needed to facilitate long-term and sustainable improvements has yet to be seen. We believe the key enabler for the future of our industry is workforce readiness to deliver on the promise of high value, high quality care that delivers equitable outcomes for all.
