An AHA-sponsored piece appearing online and in print today in USA Today looks at hospital initiatives to advance health care affordability and value and optimize the patient experience. “Affordability and value should go hand-in-hand in health care, helping optimize the patient experience,” the article notes. “Hospital and health system leaders across the United States are tackling affordability directly — but they can’t do it alone. Addressing affordability will require all parts of the health care sector to think differently and act collaboratively. Every stakeholder — hospitals, physicians, drug and device companies, insurers, the government, even patients — has a role to play.”
