Healthcare Trends and Forecasts 2015: E-Visits, Telehealth to Grow, PHOs Continue to Surge

Steven ValentineE-visits and telehealth will grow in 2015, as health plans like Catholic Health Initiatives continue to lead the way, and Anthem Blue Cross collaborates with health systems to put a new type of health product in the marketplace that has e-visit reimbursement, predicts Steve Valentine, president of the Camden Group during this audio interview. Part-time physicians employed by health systems or health plans will most likely fill the impending clinician gap in 2015, and physician-hospital organizations (PHOs), once defined as a messenger model for the preferred provider organization (PPO) world, will continue in 2015 as a linkage of hospital and physicians primarily in non-risk bearing health plans.

Each year, healthcare executives rely on the strategic advice they receive during the Healthcare Intelligence Network’s annual Healthcare Trends & Forecasts webinar. Once again Steven Valentine joins HIN along with Dorothy Moller, consultant for Navigant, to provide a roadmap to the key issues, challenges and opportunities for healthcare payors and providers in 2015 during Healthcare Trends & Forecasts in 2015: A Strategic Planning Session, a 60-minute webinar on November 13, 2014, sponsored by The Healthcare Intelligence Network.
