2015 Industry Outlook: Strategic Implications of Healthcare Changes in the New Year

Dan Mendelson

February 4, 2015
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST

In 2014 the healthcare industry saw fundamental change in how health plans approach the market, provider consolidation in many areas, a focus on quality-based payments, unprecedented growth in consumer liability for the cost of chronic illness, and a slowing in the rise in healthcare costs. 

What are the practical implications for strategy? What can we expect in 2015 with new markets and new decision makers?  Join us for a one-hour discussion on these issues and their implications. 

We'll discuss:

  • New sources of insurance – both individual and consumer-directed – and how changes in benefit design are affecting consumer choices.
  • Quality-based payments – how they are being crafted and how they are affecting the type of healthcare prioritized by plans.

  • Change at the FDA, including biosimilars approvals, and stakeholder and patient voice.  And how legislation may affect the FDA mission.
  • The likely future of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) given a new political configuration and the start of a new political season.
  • Next steps for innovative health system models, including commercial contracts, Medicare shared savings, Accountable Care Organization (ACO) rulemaking.

Space is limited, so register today.

Other panelists include: Lindy Hinman, Senior Vice President; Ellen Lukens, Vice President; and Josh Seidman, Vice President.
