BOSTON – October 03, 2016 – As agile new players enter the health care marketplace with innovative delivery models, established organizations are challenged to navigate new types of risk in order to transform their provision of care.

This introduction of risk to health care delivery is driving providers and payers to seek new ways of doing business. Stakeholders at every level of the health care system are discovering that trying to do the same thing, but on a lower budget, will take them only so far.

On Thursday, October 6, at 1–5 p.m. EST, NEJM Catalyst will produce a live web event, New Risk, New Business Models. This free event will explore emerging risk in health care through three sessions: disruptive new ventures, innovative care management, and adaptation to change. Participants will hear from provider and payer leaders, executives from industry start-ups, and researchers about how they are launching new ventures, scaling innovative care delivery models, and testing new payment methodologies.

“How can health care providers survive and succeed in this era of greater risk created by new entrants and new payment models? Thought leaders, practitioners, and executives will share their ideas on strategies for success at every stage of the industrial life cycle – entry, growth, and maturity,” says Event Chair Leemore Dafny, PhD, MBA Class of 1960 Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School.

The event will include three separate sessions, with viewers encouraged to submit questions online for the Q&A portion of each. The sessions are:

  • New Entrants — Breaking In Is Hard to Do: Two leaders of successful new entrant companies discuss the aspirations, the challenges, and the moxie required to succeed.
  • New Business Models — Making Medicaid Work: The head of Arkansas’ innovative Medicaid program will join the leader of a large managed care services provider to share insights on how to deliver quality care on a tight budget.
  • New Strategies — How AMCs Can Compete: Leaders of two of the nation’s top academic medical centers will debate how their organizations – and all traditional hospitals – can continue their historic excellence in care delivery while adapting to a changing market.

Attendees will come away with valuable insights on the future of health care delivery; opportunities being seized by innovators, and the impact of change on patients, traditional providers, and the delivery system as a whole.

NEJM Catalyst offers a combination of multimedia content, web events, expert panels, and new research. NEJM Catalyst connects health care executives, clinical leaders, and clinicians with practical approaches and actionable steps to implement changes in their organizations that improve the value of health care delivery and patient care.
