To UnitedHealth Group, a "next-generation health system" is one that improves care access, affordability, patient experience and outcomes. 

In a recently published "commitment to sustainability," the healthcare company outlined seven steps it believes must be taken to create tomorrow's healthcare system. 

Here's a summary of the steps:

1. Reshape the healthcare workforce by investing in inclusivity, data analyst jobs, capacity and primary care.

2. Reduce cost burdens through transparency, value-based models and no more surprise billing.

3. Embolden the patient-physician relationship by using individual health records and new authorization processes.

4. Improve health outcomes through better home-based care, chronic disease management and prevention measures. 

5. Incentivize high-performing physicians to focus on patient outcomes. 

6. Focus on social determinants of health like affordable housing and food security.
