Fierce Healthcare, by Matt Kuhrt

HHS Secretary Alex Azar outlined four priorities for the agency this week, and accelerating the path to value-based payment systems and reducing healthcare costs are at the top of his list.

In remarks given to the Federation of American Hospitals on Monday, Azar delivered a blunt message.

“Today’s healthcare system is simply not delivering outcomes commensurate with its cost,” he said.
