Quote of Dr. Don Rucker, Head of ONC under HHS at Top of Mind 2019
  1. In all fairness, neither physicians nor hospitals can succeed without real partnership of insurance companies. Payers have to provide access to what’s below and depicted to the right for data. Insurers vary in their data and collaboration capabilities.
  2. Many of today’s healthcare executives rose through the ranks as medicine was industrializing itself. LEAN and its subsequent movement is primarily focused on controlling operations, a worthwhile goal in a fee for service context, before a time when physician leadership, engagement, and alignment became as important as it really is in the value based world. Shifting from an operations-centric paradigm to a collaborative paradigm involving physician engagement is a complete change that is out of the reach of many organizations. There will be winners and losers.
  3. Further, many of today’s executives also rose through the ranks in the 90’s when “managed care” was a big discussion. One reason why managed care mostly failed is that its exclusive focus seemed to be on rationing care without any real emphasis on results to the patient. Today, society is much different than it was in the 90’s and people like me (Gen X) and (Gen Y) bring different demands to our institutions when we do choose to engage with them. Any health system that needs to cater to Gen X and Gen Y as either patients or caregivers will not try to deny that the world is a very different place with marked demographic and societal changes apparent today. As patients, we demand results and efficiency! As our country strains under the unsustainable cost of healthcare with mismatched results, you can see why today’s consensus for value based care is very different from the conversation of the 90’s. The country spent $3.4 trillion on health care in 2016, a number that is projected to grow to $5.5 trillion by 2025. [1]
