The pressure to transform healthcare has been building for many years and many frameworks have been proposed for this transformation. The "Triple Aim" concept of improving the health of the population, improving the experience of the patient and controlling cost can be used as a guide post for adopting the necessary changes to thrive in a new construct of women's healthcare. Following these guiding principles should lead to improved clinical outcomes at affordable costs with high patient and provider satisfaction. The actual changes will come in the form of various "transformational forces". One of the driving forces will be conversion of the current payment structure from a fee-for-service model to value-based payments. In addition, the methods of care must be redesigned into a "team based" approach where providers and patients utilize best practice protocols that are individualized to specific patient needs. Redesign will continue to drive consolidation of providers into larger groups to cover the cost of the needed infrastructure.
