HealthNex: Patient-Centered Care

HealthNex: Patient-Centered Care: "For the past several years the Amercian Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) has spoken out loud and clear about a broken U.S. health care system that dispenses high-cost, low-quality care in an inefficient system driven by sub specialists rather than primary care.

Finally, someone is listening. IBM, the world's largest information technology company -- with some 329,000 employees in 75 countries -- is working with the Academy on designing a health care system that will keep IBM employees healthier with a lower price tag.

'This is watershed, historic moment,' said AAFP President Larry Fields, M.D., of Ashland, Ky. 'It's the first time a large employer and a medical specialty society have collaborated to design a cost efficient, quality, affordable health care system for employees.'"
