5 Keys To Health Plan Survival

I thought I would re-post these from the Corporate Research Group.   

Bertolini outlined  five keys to surviving reform: 1. Payment reforms that shifts incentives from volume to outcomes; 2. Information technology that improves quality, lowers cost; 3. Wellness: engaging consumers with incentives and decision-support tools; 4. Transparency tools that provide information and improve accountability; 5. Revamped benefits and plan designs.

 These seem pretty logical and echo some of the things I brought up in my pharmacy white paper last year. 

1. The need to better engage the consumer in understanding their benefits and ultimately responsibility for their care;
2. The effort to automate and integrate data across a fragmented system and across siloed organizations; and
3. The shift from trend management to being responsible for outcomes.
