Unpacking Health Systems’ Current Environment and the Necessary Strategies for Success
August 4, 2014
Hosted by Robert Chamberlain
While the Affordable Care Act targets a number of entities, health systems and hospitals remain central to its goal: to provide better care to more people for less money. To do so, health systems are forced to invest in technology, physicians and infrastructure to ensure their organizations are focused on prevention and value-based care. The question for systems is how to meet the requirements of the law with strategies that enable them to realize financial viability. Join Robert and his guest, Russ Guerin, a healthcare consultant and executive coach with a finance background and nearly 30 years of experience within health systems. The frank conversation will cover the current environment in which large and independent, for profit and not-for-profit health systems operate, the direction systems need to take and the partnerships they need to form to achieve success, including a mutual understanding between employers, providers and insurers.
