Podcast 175: “Understanding Value-Based Healthcare” — A Discussion with the Authors of an Important New Book
Running time: 26 minutes
“Understanding Value-Based Healthcare,” published in April by McGraw-Hill is today’s focus.
Drs. Christopher Moriates, of the University of California, San Francisco; Vineet Arora, of the University of Chicago; and Neel Shah of Harvard Medical — the book’s authors — discuss its straightforward approach to valuing patient outcomes foremost.
The discussion ranges over their reasons for writing the book, their attempt to reach the broader audience concerned with healthcare costs, and their recommendations for taking action locally.
