The transformational change occurring in health care has a focus on value: meeting patient needs while promoting good health. However, developing health care delivery and payment models to achieve the Triple Aim will be challenging. Changes in care delivery include new partnerships among payers, providers, government, the community and across the care continuum; greater use of technology to empower clinicians and patients with increased access to information; and a relentless focus on high reliability and safety. Hospitals and health care systems will have to develop care delivery systems focused on the whole person while improving the health of the communities they serve. All this must be done in the context of a payment and financing system that rewards high-quality outcomes as well as individual and population health.
