Summary 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 is 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, (a) access, as in caring for anyone, anytime, anywhere, (b) quality, delivered by offering world-class care and establishing integrated information repositories, and (c) value, which is created by providing effective and efficient healthcare delivery. These three components are interconnected such that they continually impact on the other and are all necessary to meet the key challenges facing healthcare organizations today.
