This piece is part one of a two part piece. It’s a short didactic presentation on the tough realities the U.S. healthcare system faces as the fee for payment system creaks against concerns about rising costs and the need for population health management.

Can we move forward with “the science of value” which true perioperative medicine offers us?

It’s a talk which is designed to spark debate and that follows in part two of this piece.

Presented by Sol Aronson, tenured Professor, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina.
