The language I use now in the health care business is completely different than the language I used even five years ago …  Until now, the government has paid on volume. Now, it’s trying to pay more on quality,” – Peter Person, chief executive of Essentia Health, a 12,800-employee hospital system based in Duluth, Minn.
