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.
