As the US healthcare system transitions away from fee-for-service compensation, health systems must begin to take a broader view of the care that they provide.
Broader than the clinic: The health system is now responsible for what happens outside the four walls of the clinic, and must leverage services that can reach patients throughout the community where they work, live, and play.
Broader than medical: Healthcare must now address all of a patient’s barriers to health, regardless of whether they are psychosocial, economic, or medical.
