The Future of the Healthcare Marketplace: Life in the Gap and Life in the Game
With the historic passage of healthcare reform legislation, the American healthcare system looks to the future. The full impact of the new legislation will not be felt until 2014 and beyond, but in the meantime, all healthcare stakeholders must deal with “Life in the Gap” before new provisions are implemented. At the same time, all healthcare stakeholders must prepare for the new emerging reality of health care reform and try to determine what “Life in the Game” will be like in a reformed system in 2014 and beyond. Organizations and individuals need to be flexible to adjust to additional modifications in the reform agenda, including the push for more widespread reimbursement reform, the growth in transparency and accountability, and the relentless quest for value in healthcare. This presentation will focus on the political, economic, and strategic context of change in healthcare, describe the possible scenarios we face and examine how the various actors are preparing for the future. It will identify the leadership challenges and opportunities that lie ahead and will provide strategic insights on how organizations and individuals can flourish in the future.
