Healthcare reform offers two major opportunities for healthcare to bend the spend curve and improve profitability, says Steven Valentine, president of The Camden Group. Valentine also weighs in on the current state of healthcare, and why organizations can’t think about healthcare reform without considering the current economy.
While the healthcare winds blew more favorably this year than they did in 2009, healthcare organizations will need key expertise to succeed in the year ahead, advises William Shea, a partner in health industry consulting for Cognizant Business Consulting. With the remix of healthcare delivery models brought on by healthcare reform, Shea identifies two challenges inherent in the trend toward patient-centered care that spans the entire continuum of care.
Valentine and Shea provided strategic advice healthcare companies can use to position themselves for success in the coming year during Healthcare Trends in 2011: A Strategic Industry Forecast, a 60-minute webinar on October 20, 2010.
