Thoughts on Reform: When ACOs, Vectors, and Spin Collide
Health Leaders Media

Health care reform has passed the point of no return. One way or another (or more likely, multiple different ways), it will evolve dramatically over this decade, although the final script probably has yet to be written. Reform will continue to follow two separate but “attached-at-the-hip” paths—payment reform and care delivery redesign. The former is largely driven by national and state politics and commercial interests, while the latter will be determined largely by provider organizations in response to various quality, smart growth, Systems of CARE (Clinical Alignment and Resource Effectiveness) and cost reduction initiatives.
