With the backdrop of the U.S. Capitol Building through a wall of windows behind him, Nemours Children's Health System's newly minted CEO made his case for why the nation's top healthcare leaders and lawmakers need to pay more attention to pediatric hospitals in the push for a value-based payment system. "What we're doing today is the beginning of Nemours really accelerating and doubling down on our commitment to this conversation and playing a leadership role in what children's healthcare looks like tomorrow," said Lawrence Moss, M.D., to the crowd that had come for the daylong event at the Newseum conference center in Washington, D.C. Moss was speaking at an event hosted by Nemours called "Pediatric Moneyball"—a nod to the tricky financial picture faced in particular by pediatric organizations—just steps from the lawmakers who have the power to prioritize their resources.
