This program covers the evolution of our current healthcare system into an unsustainable cost structure that must be urgently redesigned to successfully compete with the thirty six industrialized nations that produce superior quality outcomes at a fraction of the cost.
It articulates the impetus for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) and why this law is insufficient for the changes that must take place and goes through ways in which individual patients, large and small employers, third party payers, and CMS are moving forward with or without federal support to find new and innovative ways to achieve high quality at much lower costs through the creation of narrow networks and price based costing.
80% of what physicians do can be performed by non-physicians and 80% of what non-physicians do can be performed on the internet and many of these innovative approaches are covered to demonstrate how many high performing organizations are dominating their markets through innovative change.
Medical tourism is the fastest growing segment of the healthcare industry and visionary organizations already compete for that space through contracts for international services with Joint Commission Accredited International facilities abroad. This program is not an exercise in 'futurism' but demonstrates what high performing organizations already do to succeed in an increasingly competitive healthcare environment and what your organization can do to be successful and thrive in a transformational environment where all of the rules will change.
Why should you attend: Healthcare reform is an economic and quality problem in the guise of a political conflict. The mandate for healthcare reform is world class quality at high the cost. This is not compatible with the traditional fee for service (FFS) reimbursement system and thus our entire healthcare system must transform into a capitated system that supports population health and evidence based prevention. This program articulates the economic and quality forces that collide to force rapid whole scales changes in the way that physicians and hospitals must do business in order to meet corporate, third party payer, and international demand and to succeed in an era of transformational change.
