Who said it?
Our annual Ten People to Watch issue is coming. As you’ll see, we had so many quality nominations that we added a “twist.”
To get things rolling, the following is some insight from one of the Ten People, on what he or she thinks we can expect to see in the near future. Who said it? You’ll find out in the upcoming issue of The Journal of Healthcare Contracting.
JHC: What is the biggest change we can expect to see in healthcare contracting in the next five years?
One of the Ten People: Accountable care organizations will redefine how healthcare is delivered. The different factions of the healthcare delivery system will no longer be able to operate in a vacuum. Their success will be determined by how well they all work together in treating patient populations. Providers with good cost and outcomes data will be able to partner with payers and suppliers to overcome the challenges of healthcare reform.
