If you already know of Amy Berman, have heard her story, or have been fortunate enough to have spent time with her, you will read more about what words like “patient centered” and “choosing wisely” look like when carried out to treat metastatic cancer. And you will also be exposed to issues that deal with the concept of the “triple aim” approach to health care delivery: better health, better care, and lower costs.
Berman writes: “Another way to look at value is gaining the same or better quality care at the same or lower cost. You want to improve quality as you decrease cost,” she said. “That is the improvement of a value proposition.”
