Value-based care is a model of reimbursement that ties payments for care delivery to the quality of care provided, as opposed to the volume of care services completed.  While it has potential to significantly reduce rising health care costs, the U.S. healthcare system will need effective methods of measuring and improving outcomes.  How technology can better define value-based care, measure costs, quality, outcomes, and support a shift from a fee-for-service model to a value-based model will be the topic of this discussion panel.
