As pressure grows for more effective, lower cost care, providers and manufacturers are facing demands for increased accountability, and improvements in patient safety, quality, and consistency.  Rita Numerof, Ph.D., discusses this increased focus on value in Creating a Framework for Accountable Care: Ensuring Product Value, as seen in the Spring 2014 edition of Prescriptions for Excellence in Health Care, jointly developed by Jefferson School of Population Health and Lilly USA.

With payment increasingly linked to quality, providers and manufacturers alike will have to demonstrate the value of their services and products.  Rita discusses the implications for providers and manufacturers of higher quality care at lower cost.  She also provides insight on demands for greater accountability and improved economic and clinical value.
