"Value-based care is really a notion of thinking about the overall care, both from the perspective of quality, the quality of care that a patient receives in terms of clinical outcomes, but also cost and affordability. Making sure you're delivering that high quality care at the best cost possible so that the overall care is sustainable for the system and affordable to the patient." - Amar Desai, MD, MPH
