Institute Overview

More managed care, more value-based contracting, and more focus on integration and care coordination – all of these factors combined means that the traditional roles of health plans and provider organizations are changing. Health plans are shifting from carve-out by specialty, to carve-out by consumer type; the role of care coordination and population management is moving from health plans to provider organizations; and there is a blurring of the lines between health plans and provider organizations – through acquisitions or gainsharing agreements.

In this changing market, the advantage will go to the organization that can deploy the right combination of innovations in a customized and marketable new solution. But that creation of the “new solution” requires strategy, operational rigor to implement the strategy, and capital to invest – which is where collaboration comes into play. To respond to the payer demand for better coordinated care, organizations need to integrate both innovation and collaboration into their organizational strategy.
