Academic medical centers (AMCs) that will thrive in the dynamic and demanding health care environment must transform into academic health centers with a mission of both improving health and delivering health care. Increasingly, their concentration must be on decreasing the total cost of care, introducing innovative models of care, increasing integration across the care continuum, and right-sizing their mission to achieve strategic and fiscal sustainability. In doing so, they can prepare for a radically different future.
