Transcript (slightly modified for readability)

I wish the Journal a happy anniversary. And I do that both as someone who has served many, many years on the editorial board, but more importantly as someone who really respects the work of the Journal and understands the importance of all that has been done in these articles over the years and the research that goes into the articles.

We are still looking for that link between value and outcomes and what's paid for healthcare services so that we can be assured that we are getting the right healthcare for the right price. And the work and research done by those who have been contributors to articles in the Journal over the years have pushed the knowledge. A lot of value-based purchasing and value-based insurance understanding of them has come from the research in the Journal.

I think it has been great work—important work. I think we're not quite there yet in terms of understanding how we should pay for healthcare services, but clearly the Journal has played key role over the years in helping us move in the right direction.
