Combining Accountability With Support
Welcome to the Future of Health!
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We trust that everyone had a rejuvenating summer as the industry kicks into high gear once again. Mega mergers, market stability issues and policy and pre-election news flood the airwaves while we all remain diligent on innovating to improve health, quality and the affordability of health care.
Themes from the pre-election proceedings on both sides of the aisle translate well to business principles necessary to succeed in today’s environment: strong connection with consumer needs, integrity and trustworthiness, responsible financial stewardship and protection or mitigation of risk.
Further translation to healthcare is the “hat trick of winning goals” as stated in the principles of the HealthCAWS Call to Action:
●Meet the new consumer where they are on their terms, with the least costly and invasive service possible to achieve their best possible outcome
●Limit unnecessary burden for providers and offer supports to advance in value-based care
●Reduce system complexity and thus instability for all stakeholders by simplifying requirements and processes; freeing up critical resources and mind space for innovation
These goals are what Combining Accountability With Support-"the CAWS™" is all about. We invite you to be part of the solution!
Best for Success,
Chairman & CEO
