Case Studies and Examples in Innovation

American Hospital Association (AHA)

As the transformation of the nation's health system begins to take shape, hospitals and health systems will find themselves more accountable for patient outcomes, patient experience, cost of care and population health. To be successful, organizations will need to transition from the first curve, or payment based on the volume of services provided, to the second curve that is payment based on the value of care to the patients and communities they serve. This transition will require innovations in care delivery. Case studies and examples of new models of delivery are offered for reference.
