Vision Statement We Believe in Simplifying Healthcare
Change In How We Measure Value From health as the absence of disease to health as vitality and energy. From focusing on the cost of health care to the total value of health; most current health care reform proposals mistakenly focus on the costs of coverage (and who pays this cost). From individual participation to population engagement. From behavior change to creating a culture of health. Even if a few individuals change behaviors, the gains will not be sustained if they return to the same culture.
