In Her Own Words
"Perhaps the most important development for delivery-system reform is seen through the opportunities to support prevention and wellness. Viewing health care through the lens of the care continuum-understanding that it begins with the healthy individual, rather than simply treating the sick-could well determine whether reform succeeds."
