Abstract: Even though the US expenditure on health care is almost twice of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) average, the care quality indicators in the US unfortunately are not reflective of such extra spending (Baird, 2016). To revise this cost and quality imbalance, new models have been recommended (and partially implemented) that will tie health care reimbursement with efficient outtcomes. This study offers a technology enabled solution to calculating appropriate bundles.
