    Methodist CEO Reflects on Health Care

    Forty years ago John Fraser’s graduate school professors warned that the health care industry was about to change.

    Today, after all that time, Fraser said, a health care overhaul is perhaps 15 percent underway, but has the momentum to turn the industry 180 degrees — switching from incentives that promoted high-volume care to incentives that reward wellness and penalize poor care.

    The impact won’t be just on doctors and hospitals, Fraser said, but also on the average person, who will have more financial motivation to stay healthy.
