Cost of Care

The complexities of our health care system can make it difficult for patients to understand the true cost of their care. Doctors and hospitals are paid by insurers based on the services they provide, not for the outcome of their care for the patient. On this program, three hospital executives and a physician discuss the push to change the methods of compensation while lowering healthcare costs and convincing patients to live healthier lives. We are joined by Roper St. Francis Healthcare CEO David Dunlap, Russ Guerin, Carolinas Healthcare System EVP for Business Development and Planning, Laurens County Health Care System CEO Rich D’Alberto and Dr. Samuel Harris of  Wake Forest Baptist Health Women’s Services, Lexington
