Value-based pay­ment is cru­cial to fix­ing our health­care sys­tem

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing the poll, “The way for­ward on value-based pay ini­tia­tives?” (ModernHealth­, Dec. 22): It is not a ques­tion of why value-based pay­ment needs to stay and be ex­panded; it’s the only way to de­liver the high­qual­ity af­ford­able care our pa­tients de­serve. U.S. Rep. Tom Price (Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump’s nom­i­nee for HHS sec­re­tary) has no clue what he is talk­ing about. I am hope­ful that good sense will pre­vail once he is in of­fice.

Roy Guharoy, Pharm.D. Vice pres­i­dent of clin­i­cal in­te­gra­tion and chief phar­macy of­fi­cer As­cen­sion, St. Louis
