Three Key Ingredients to a Healthy Marketplace (01:01)

 

We need three key ingredients for the marketplace that enables us to live healthy lives at an affordable cost, according to New Marketplace Lead Advisor Leemore Dafny.

Consumers need “the vote,” or the ability and convenience to select their own health plans. Insurers need to design products that satisfy an array of customer segments; they must also “push for payment reform that supports delivery reform in the service of actually realizing the patient goals that they’ve set.” Last but not least, providers need to focus on how they can best serve patients’ needs. “The secret sauce that will make the three ingredients hang together,” says Dafny, “will be competition at every step.”

From the NEJM Catalyst event Innovation in Health Care Leadership: The New Health Care Marketplace at Northwestern University, June 4, 2015.
