Throughout the research process, the healthcare organizations HFMA interviewed made reference to the "value journey." This section begins with where our healthcare system is today, follows promising paths that innovative healthcare organizations are pioneering, and describes possible new destinations for healthcare organizations in a value-based future.

In this report, HFMA shares discussions with leading provider organizations across the country and conducted surveys of the field and identifies four capabilities that organizations should develop to prepare for a value-based healthcare system. In addition, this report details essential skills within each of the four capabilities that healthcare organizations should begin to develop now, and it outlines a series of assumptions that will push the healthcare system in two directions. 

All 10 Value Project reports have been compiled in this sourcebook, which encompasses five years of HFMA research on improving value in health care.
