    Dr. Oppenheimer, Thank you for sharing this article. I believe the idea regarding reimbursements and paying for outcome rather than specific services is fascinating. A hybrid between these two notions, I believe, will provide the best outcome for both patient and practitioner. Furthermore, this idea transitions smoothly into your next point, emphasizing the importance of having more integrated, rather than isolated, practitioners in a cohesive health system. Dalga Surofchy
