How do we categorize and define value-based purchasing, and how can it help us avoid unnecessary costs and foster better quality of care? What are some examples, and how do guidelines work in conjunction with value-based purchasing? Dr. Joel Brill, assistant clinical professor of medicine at the University of Arizona School of Medicine and chief medical officer of Predictive Health, LLC, talks about how we can best characterize and measure the still-nebulous ideals of quality and value.
