Why go downtown when you can get the same thing at a better price in town? That’s the consumer-centric concept that fuels the distributed academic medical center model pioneered by Tufts Medical Center in Boston.

Tufts, one of the many stars in Boston’s world-renowned tertiary care constellation, shares its medical expertise and that of its medical staff with a network of community hospitals, offering patients outside of Boston the same high-quality care but at lower prices.

Ellen Zane, CEO emeritus of Tufts, explains how the distributed academic medical center model creates value for patients who need inpatient care and those that pay for that care.
