October 26, 2021, Opinion: "Health care organizations must learn from what has worked during the Covid-19 crisis. Leaders have found that while they cannot do everything, they must define and manage the sequence of activities required to deliver high-value care.  Over the last 2 decades, U.S. health care has slowly increased its orientation toward improving value (i.e., health outcomes achieved per dollars spent) as opposed to volume of services alone — and this progress has accelerated with the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Faced with crisis, the major health care stakeholders (including care delivery organizations, insurers, and government) put aside preoccupation with policies on how to pay providers and organized instead around the primary goals of keeping patients safe and meeting their needs."
