By the time you read this article, leaders of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) will have participated in the Changing Healthcare Landscape Summit. The Summit was proposed to ASHA's Board of Directors by the Health Care Economics Committee in October 2011 in light of the impending changes in healthcare. The goals of the summit were to: (1) exchange information and develop specific recommendations that will facilitate members’ successful engagement in the new environment, (2) safe-guard the professions, (3) advance national databases to inform quality improvement, and (4) drive evidence-based practice (Cornett & McNeilly, 2012). All areas of our profession will be affected by healthcare changes whether you provide clinical services in schools, medical settings, or private practice; whether you are an administrator or a supervisor; or whether you are a professor or researcher. The basic premise was that reimbursement for our services will be based on functional outcomes, not the number of services provided or the number of minutes a therapist provides. Think quality not quantity, or value not volume! Can we prove that the strategies we use make a measureable and positive functional difference in the recipient's life?
