“Value-based care is really a notion of thinking about the overall care, both from the perspective of quality, the quality of care that a patient receives in terms of clinical outcomes, but also cost and affordability. Making sure you’re delivering that high quality care at the best cost possible so that the overall care is sustainable for the system and affordable to the patient.” – Amar Desai, MD, MPH
“We have a fantastic top performing, very diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of workforce here at Optum. And so my team is working on various different initiatives to showcase our team to the public, not just about their professional achievements and more importantly, to show the human side of them, their lives outside of Optum and their lives as a part of the community that they love and serve. And that’s when The Inside Beat podcast was born.” – Michelle Li, PhD
