Abstract
This paper will focus on the potential conflicts between health care delivery and the control of health care costs. The recent and ongoing debate about the cost of health care has led many to believe that health care delivery must be sacrificed in the process of achieving control of health care costs. The goals of this paper are to examine the factors which provide improved health care to the general population, to briefly discuss the factors which increase health care costs, and then focus on policies, technologies, and procedures which have the potential to lower health care costs while improving quality of care.
