Survey and Webinar Seizing Opportunity in the Wake of Reform

By | White Papers

While considerable doubt persists regarding the pace and form of health reform’s implementation, a second Obama term assures us that the central tents of the ACA will not be eliminated. Yet, against this backdrop of reform, it remains unclear how institutions will react to the complex system of carrots and sticks that has been erected around them. It is the purpose of this study to identify what types of bets high-performing hospital systems, health plans, and health care IT companies are making in the wake of reform.

Redefining Payer-Provider Collaboration

By | White Papers

As legislators continue to debate the role of the federal government in administering health care, the need for enhanced coordination between payers and providers has never been more acute. In the last five years, we have seen the most progressive hospitals and health plans enter into partnerships for mutually- beneficial gains. Challenging what was once an openly adversarial relationship, these innovative players are collaborating to share risk, lower cost, and seize market share.
