In his interview, Rawlins said, “Health care is going through a tectonic change that is affecting all of its stakeholders, including hospitals, physicians, insurers, employers and patients. The focus is changing toward service integration, quality outcomes and value with a goal of having a more workable and simpler health care system centered on consumers. Like many large-scale transitions, it won’t be easy. But it will be worth it as we focus on things that will improve the health and wellness of our people and communities.”
