Hospital Case Examples

Government, businesses, insurance companies and many others must act to help make health care more affordable. But, knowing that they are on the frontlines of care where change will ultimately manifest itself, hospital leaders across the country are not waiting for others to act. Many are tackling the affordability issue already, seeking change that makes sense for them and the communities they serve. Some of these efforts are sweeping; some are more targeted. But all of them signal recognition in the field that the time to act is now.
