During the first decade of this century, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) played a major role in laying out a vision and strategic direction for change at all levels of the health system, including patients engaged as partners in their health and health care; integrated health systems capable of providing coordinated, team-based care and managing the entire patient-focused episode; and communities that support healthy lifestyles and provide access to health care for all. Creating an accountability environment of value-based payment and public reporting programs that rewards better outcomes at lower cost is critical to achieving this vision.
