State of the Union: Navigating Disruption, Consolidation, and Cost Pressure

About the Webconference

While a divided Congress limits the prospect for sweeping legislative reforms in the next two years, providers across the country find themselves grappling with myriad market forces—health system consolidation, vertical integration, downward price pressure, shifting demographics, and spikes in bad debt—that threaten provider economics. And the federal government continues to use administrative action to advance both coverage and delivery system reforms. This session will explore both the political actions and market forces that threaten long-term success, and the actions leaders must take to control their own futures in a rapidly changing marketplace.

Things You’ll Learn:

  • How the current era of disruption in health care is different--and why that matters
  • What the recent wave of mega-mergers and vertical consolidation means for the industry
  • Which political actions are likely to have the largest near-term impact on the health care sector
