Spring 2016 Economic Outlook

As healthcare continues to face pressure to reduce costs, improve quality and increase access through population health measures, members of the industry – providers, suppliers, and others – are facing numerous headwinds to meet and adapt to these challenges. In an environment where reimbursement is decreasing at the same time various imperatives, such as interoperability, require large and long-term investments, the industry at large needs to adjust its sails to co-create innovative ways to meet the needs of patients. And our members are doing just that. Providers are trying out alternative payment models, expanding their post-acute network to better serve patients, implementing new technologies and data analysis methods, and much more. They, with help from industry partners like Premier, are doing what it takes to transform healthcare from the inside.

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.

Spring 2015 Economic Outlook

As health systems expand as end-to-end care facilities – including home health aides, palliative care, urgent care and physician offices – it’s important that their internal processes follow suit. Increasingly capable and integrated data systems give health system executives and employees the visibility necessary to drive improvements in cost, quality and outcomes across disparate departments and facilities.
