* Providers need to be motivated to focus on wellness and prevention.
* Individuals need to be motivated to care about the cost of care and to act in a healthy manner.
* Pharmacists need to be motivated to take the extra action of moving patients to lower cost agents, resolving administrative edits, and counseling patients.

* Health Plans need to be motivated to invest in long-term care initiatives that prevent people from getting sick."
