A Look at Trends Impacting Healthcare’s Current Financial Environment
September 22, 2014
Hosted by Robert Chamberlain
Hospitals and health systems continue to navigate a post ACA-implementation world that focuses on fee-for-performance, bundled services and a system heavily dependent on Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement. Yet the stocks of these systems and organizations are doing well despite the profit-restrictive environment. Join Robert and his guest, David Windley, managing director, Health Equity Research at Jeffries, LLC, as they take a current look at health system and hospital financial viability as well as the products and services that remain in demand. Part of their discussion centers on how for-profits are faring in the sea of government reimbursement and they will review the state of ACOs and managed care and hospital stocks. They also discuss how healthcare consumers have risen through the ranks to become major influencers in the industry.
