We’re not getting the value for our health care dollars that we should be. If we look toward most other industrialized countries in the world, [we see that] their health outcomes are so much better than ours, yet the cost to provide health care both to our country and in California is so much greater than in these other places. … We can have an impact on that by providing better value for the dollars we do spend.”
