Michael inspired us by doing important things. Founding the original hospital database, which we now know as Truven, which almost everyone in healthcare who works with CMS is touched by everyday. Founding SG2, an organization many of us have worked with, to help develop our strategy, making our organizations stronger and more competitive. There were many other companies he was involved with beyond these two. He was truly dedicated to making all of healthcare better and consulted all over the world to attain his vision of the best healthcare for everyone.</p> <p>He was someone I could always rely on to have a thoughtful comment about the problems we were facing. A confidante, really, of which there are so few in the world.</p> <p>Thank you, Michael, for what you have given to all of us.

Health care spending is expected to accelerate over the next 5 years, reaching 20% of the U.S. gross domestic product by 2025. Quality of care and health outcomes remain sub-optimal. While environmental, social, and behavioral factors are the primary determinants of poor population health status and health outcomes in the U.S.,4 significant opportunities remain to improve the value of health care and the health care delivery system. Moreover, the health care system has an obligation to play a meaningful role in helping to overcome the effects of these external factors.</p> <p><a href="https://catalyst.nejm.org/value-based-payment-academic-medical-centers/" target="_blank">Read full article on Catalyst NEJM</a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://createvalue.org/articles_and_news/value-based-payment-means-academic-medical-centers/">What Value-Based Payment Means for Academic Medical Centers</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://createvalue.org">Catalysis</a>.</p>
