The New Health Care Marketplace
June 04, 2015
Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University
To drive improvement in quality and affordability, U.S. health care needs marketplaces driven by competition around real value for the health care consumer. Such competition represents a major break with the past — but, around the country, there are encouraging trends in this direction. Nevertheless, the development of competition-driven marketplaces is complicated by uncertainty over the ultimate impact of consolidation among providers and between providers and payers, and the complexity associated with moving to new payment models. What actions will speed — or threaten — the development of a new health care marketplace driven by value? How should providers adapt to this changing environment? This meeting provides actionable insights and knowledge for leaders of provider organizations and their clinicians, health care purchasers, and policy-makers.
