Over the past 10 years, Costs of Care has helped lead the value improvement movement through a number of overlapping phases, from raising awareness and advocating for transparency, to addressing appropriateness by supporting clinician-led efforts to reduce waste and low-value care. There is still much work to be done on each of these fronts and as an organization we will continue to be meaningfully engaged in advocacy, awareness, appropriateness, and education. However, while each of these foundational components are necessary, they are insufficient for making the impact we want to see on patients’ financial and physical experience of health care. To truly provide greater value for diverse populations, we must meaningfully address patient affordability.
