The Obama administration Monday announced a plan to shift Medicare payments it makes to hospitals and doctors so they reward quality over volume. Officials said they hoped the move would be a catalyst for the entire health-care system."It is in our common interest to build a health care system that delivers better care, spends health care dollars more wisely and results in healthier people," Burwell said in a statement. A broad cross-section of health-care industry representatives attended the announcement, including insurers, hospitals, and doctors, as well as employers, who pay for coverage for most workers and their families.(AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)
