Value-based initiatives, such as bundled payments, are great vehicles to collaborate more closely with independent providers in our efforts to improve the patient experience. As value-based programs become more common, it will be increasingly important to identify new ways to drive better patient outcomes, higher-quality care and more efficient services. We are pleased that our work with bundles is enabling opportunities for independent providers to engage in this important dialogue.
