How does our healthcare measure up?

 How do we stem the tide of ever-increasing health care costs?  How do we know that we are getting the best value for the health care services we pay for?  How do we improve access for the underserved in our community?  And what about the safety and efficacy of these new outpatient urgent care, diagnostic and surgery centers cropping up in our neighborhoods?
