In everything we do, we are committed to being an essential partner to help customers focus on their patients. Because we know that together, we are Essential to care™.
Healthcare is truly transforming. Demographics, public health, economic challenges and the implementation of healthcare reform are powerful forces for change. Providers are under enormous pressure to improve quality while decreasing costs. Traditional "fee-for-service" is shifting to more of a "fee-for-value" system where incentives will encourage a focus on outcomes — and care is increasingly coordinated across delivery settings.
Cardinal Health is squarely aligned with where healthcare is going. Through our broad line of products and services, our scale and our ability to connect manufacturers to providers across the continuum of care, we can facilitate cost-effective, high-quality healthcare from the hospital to the home.
