The Future of the Health Care Marketplace: Implications for Human Resources Leaders
All health care stakeholders must prepare to play a new game in a reformed health system. Organizations and individuals need to be flexible to adjust to additional modifications in the reform agenda, including the push for more widespread reimbursement reform, the growth in transparency and accountability, and the relentless quest for value in health care driven by patients and purchasers. This presentation will focus on the political, economic, and strategic context of change in healthcare, describe the possible scenarios we face and examine how the various actors are preparing for the future. It will identify the leadership challenges and opportunities that lie ahead and will provide strategic insights on how organizations and individuals can flourish in the future. In particular, the presentation will focus on the key issues that health systems leaders are focusing on and the ways in which organizations can manage through the improvement fatigue in a time of high change.
