In this unit, we have examined the payment process in health care from both the provider perspective and the payer perspective. Some would say that the provider payment process we have nowadays adds a lot of cost to our health care system—without adding any value to patient care. As a health care manager, how can we address this significant driver of costs? Are there things that your organization is doing or could do to reduce this cost to the health care economy? Feel free to add any comments on how this is relevant to your work or note any points of confusion. Please also note if there is a topic that you wish to know more about from this week’s lesson.
