Did you know 34% of health care payment in this country is tied to value?

It’s easy to list all the times healthcare gets it wrong. Long wait times, poor communication, and overworked providers clicking away at a computer screen during your visit are all too common. The healthcare industry is notorious for delivering terrible experiences. But what about when healthcare gets it right? In recent years the concept of patient-centered care has become popular, frankly because the idea that healthcare providers have an imperative to provide care designed around the patient was somewhat of a revolution. Patient experiences are so often inconvenient, impersonal, and unhelpful that, in the end, patient’s ability to meaningful engage […]
