Melinda S. Hancocki, FHFMA, CPA, 2015–16 HFMA National Chair, chose the theme of Go Beyond. In the past, American health care was built on the fee-for-service payment system. Today, we know that system does not promote the high-value care that patients and other care purchasers demand and that providers want to deliver. We are going through a long transition to transformation—a transition that will require us to go beyond our current payment system which is increasingly being phased out.
