The Need For Change

Novant Health Clinically Integrated Network (NHCIN)

Today's healthcare system is unsustainable. It is built on a system that treats the symptoms of disease rather than promoting health and a healthy lifestyle. As a result, we have a model of care that is fragmented, inefficient, uncoordinated, broken.

The cost of healthcare continues to climb.

Healthcare premiums have significantly increasedhealth premiums have risen faster than average U.S. wages

Healthcare premiums have risen 3.5 faster than average U.S. wages. Premiums increased 131 percent between 1999 and 2009, while wages rose just 38 percent.

If food prices inflated like healthcare costs since 1945, a:

  • Dozen eggs would cost $55
  • Dozen oranges would cost $134
  • Gallon of milk would cost $48

Chronic conditions strain the healthcare system.

Consumer expectations are changing.

30 million new customers in the marketplace since 2010

Since 2010, 30 million new consumers have entered the marketplace due to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). As a result, healthcare is rapidly evolving from a fee-for-service model to one based on value to the patient. The pace to operationalize value-based payments has accelerated significantly, and physicians must learn how to operate within this new paradigm for care in order to succeed.
