The Biggest Healthcare Trends of 2019 and What’s to Come in 2020

In our Healthcare Outlook for 2019 webinar, Stephen Grossbart, PhD, and Bobbi Brown, MBA, shared their predictions for the biggest trends of the year. Which predictions panned out and which didn’t? View this webinar as Stephen takes a look back at 2019 and makes his forecast for 2020.

So, what did happen in 2019? Following the 2018 midterm elections, we predicted a divided Congress would not pass policies to strengthen or weaken the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We were right. Meanwhile, Democratic presidential candidates debated the extent to which they would support Medicare for All. Insurance costs continued to rise, breaking $20,000 annually for families with employer-sponsored coverage, and CMS continued to support payment policies rewarding quality and interoperability as part of their payment policy.

Join Stephen as he looks in the rearview mirror at these important issues and how they impacted the healthcare industry in 2019 and then gazes into the crystal ball to predict the trends that will most impact healthcare in 2020. In this webinar, Stephen discusses the following topics and more:
• The continued focus on price transparency.
• Congress’ efforts to control prescription drug costs.
• Policies that may change the future of ACOs.
• What to expect going into the 2020 election year.

Health Care Outlook for 2019

During the 2018 mid-term elections, candidates faced off making big claims that they would be the ones to fix healthcare. Now that they are back to work, what can we anticipate with a new Congress? Will we finally see improvements or gridlock? Join Bobbi Brown, MBA and Stephen Grossbart, PhD as they tackle these questions along with a 2018 lookback of what went right and 2019 predictions of the most important trends that will impact our daily work.

Beyond political maneuvering, in 2018 we saw material changes in the business of healthcare. The pace of mergers, acquisitions and partnerships was strong and deals like the pending acquisition of Aetna by CVS, could dramatically impact patient behavior and revenue streams. In addition, the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) continues to support existing programs while adding new measures to support transparency, interoperability and a continued shift to value-based payments. What does this mean for your organization in 2019? View this webinar to learn more across these areas:

– The business of healthcare including new market entrants, business models and shifting strategies to stay competitive.
– Continuous quality and cost control monitoring across populations.
– CMS proposals to push ACOs into two-sided risk models.
– Historic changes to Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
– Fewer process measures but more quality outcomes scrutiny for providers.
– Increased consumer demand for more transparency.

There are many challenges and opportunities for all of us in healthcare. Join Bobbi and Stephen as they draw upon their decades of experience to make sense of the past year and look ahead to give you guidance for the new year. This is the fourth year running that Bobbi has presented her predictions at the turn of the new year and past attendees will remember that her knack for predicting is uncanny and her stories are unforgettable. This time was no different.
