A scale with money on one end, a heart representing health on the other, representing value in health care.The American health care system is in crisis. For decades costs have risen, while health outcomes have largely stayed the same: consumers aren’t getting the value of care they deserve.

Shifting to value-based models that rewards quality and penalizes unnecessary and wasteful care can improve outcomes and provide savings to consumers.
