Health Care Delivery

Our health system is shattered and much of the problem lies with the fragmentation of our delivery system which operates low-quality and ineffective care in a country filled with highly skilled health care professionals.

The health care sector in the United States consists of a collection of clinicians, hospitals and other health care provisions, insurance plans, and purchasers of health care services, all driving in various configurations of groups, networks, and independent practices. Some are based in the public sector; others manage in the private sector as either for-profit or not-for-profit entities. The health care sector also encompasses some voluntary regulators and others governmental regulators.

The Affordable Care Act offers opportunity for delivery system reform to assure that patients are getting the proper care at the proper time in a coordinated, collaborative and organized manner.
