Shownotes

The American health care system is dominated by misaligned financial incentives, rewarding providers for more--but not necessarily BETTER--treatment. In this episode, Ceci and guests we discuss ways to shift our health care approach away from volume – and the waste and unnecessary care it involves - and to a model focused on value. Research repeatedly shows that a value-based, outcome-focused system reduces costs and produces better health outcomes. Hear what the experts have to say in Ep 4 of Healthy Dialogue.  

Guests:

Shannon Brownlee, Senior Vice President, Lown Institute

Diane Holder, President and CEO, UPMC Health Plan
