Truly, the period from 2000 to 2010 advanced our practice and allowed us to witness many changes. As with any period of change, we had assets and liabilities, but the stage was set and the opportunities to advance started to emerge.

We remained with a broken and inadequate system, and it was obvious that the payment model was not working.
Currently, we are experiencing a complete change in care delivery from a focus on volume of care to a focus on value of the care being delivered. In this value-based equation, the numerator is the targeted outcome, with the denominator being the total cost to provide the care of a medical condition, therefore, value equals outcome divided by cost, or V=O/C.
