Fall 2015 Economic Outlook

Unlike bees in a hive, the U.S. healthcare system has long valued individual expertise as long as it retains autonomy – and because of that, we largely have not focused on the strength of combining all of that expertise into a cohesive system of care. But while our industry still highly values – and really hinges on – specialized experts, personalized care and precision medicine, we’re increasingly identifying ways that individual practices can hamper the big picture of population health. Like hive mind, where each bee has to each deliver on its separate tasks by constantly communicating, providers need to synchronize the components of care delivery so that we can all achieve our goal of healthier communities.
