Fierce Healthcare writes about the importance of the push of value-based care and it’s relation to lower healthcare costs.

“Policymakers looking to lower healthcare costs must continue to push the industry toward value-based models, experts told legislators at a hearing on Tuesday. 
The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee convened the hearing on healthcare costs that included testimony from providers, researchers and purchasers in the business sphere.  
Brent James, M.D., clinical professor in the Department of Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine, told senators they must continue to “vigorously” move toward value-based care to lower costs.”
