Slide notes:This concludes lecture c of Introduction to and History of Modern Health Care in the U.S. In summary, the core values of U.S. health care emphasize patient choice and an interdisciplinary approach to care. The emergence of multi-level care, accompanied by significant technological advances, reflects the increasing complexity of diseases and their management. This progress has, in part, driven a dramatic increase in health care costs something that U.S. patients would like to see better contained. These core values are demonstrated in several significant paradigm shifts in medicine from physician -centric to patient-centric care; from individual to team-based care; from team-based care to accountable care; and from paper-based management of medical information, to the use of technology in the management of medical information and the delivery of health care. 13
