Abstract: Medical science has made revolutionary changes in the past decades. Contemporaneously, however, healthcare has made incremental changes at best. The growing discrepancy between the revolutionary changes in medicine and the minimal changes in healthcare processes is leading to inefficient and ineffective healthcare delivery and one if not the significant contributor to the exponentially increasing costs plaguing healthcare globally. Healthcare organizations can respond to these challenges by focusing on three key solution strategies; namely: (1) access—caring for anyone, anytime, anywhere; (2) quality—offering world-class care and establishing integrated information repositories; and (3) value—providing effective and efficient healthcare delivery.
