Abstract

The health care system in the United States is undergoing profound changes. Unprecedented demographic, technological, political, and economic shifts have led to new organizational structures, reimbursement systems, and professional relationships in health care delivery. The most commonly used criteria for determining success of a health care system are access, quality and cost. These measures are important, but they are not the only elements worthy of consideration at this time of systemic change in health care.
