As healthcare spending in the U.S. reaches unsustainable levels, the value-based reform movement seeks to rein in costs and improve quality. Amid these reform efforts, Leavitt Partners surveyed hundreds of physicians and employers, and thousands of consumers across the nation in an effort to understand how these different stakeholders approach healthcare’s challenges and solutions.

All three groups agree that fundamental changes are needed to make the U.S. health system work better; however, physicians and employers disagree on which payment reform efforts will work, who is responsible for driving reform, and which are the most important barriers to overcome. Consumers expressed the need for fundamental, systemic changes to the healthcare system, yet report satisfaction with their individual health care, including their health insurance plan.
