HealthLeaders Media | 5 Quotes from Azar’s World Health Care Congress Speech

A FORUM for DOCTORS Coming to Atlanta, GA USA, October 26-27, 2018

By Steven Porter, May 2, 2018

The HHS secretary focused his message on the long-running transformation toward a value-based healthcare delivery system. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar addressed the World Health Care Congress in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday morning with an optimistic message. Although policy wonks have been talking for years about healthcare’s shift to a value-based delivery system, the time for action has finally come, Azar said. “Today, we have a president who is unafraid to drive the disruption we need. President Trump is a man of courage and vision,” he said in his prepared remarks. “He has seen and heard how the high cost of healthcare is burdening so many Americans; he understands that our system too often fails to deliver value; and he has given us a mandate to do something about it.”
