A chat with Sanjay Saxena, global leader of BCG’s health care payers, providers, systems, and services business, on the challenges facing US hospitals and health care systems.
As competition grows, plans need to win their members’ trust—and their renewal—every year. Here’s how to do it.
What challenges does the future hold for a fast-evolving sector that has undergone decades of change in the past 18 months?
Payers that take a tailored PMI approach and follow six imperatives for success will be well positioned to achieve the strategic objectives of their M&A.
The actions that health insurers take—or do not take—in the next three to six months will determine their ability to compete and thrive beyond the end of this year.
Public health will be immeasurably harmed if providers and facilities do not begin providing the full portfolio of patient services as soon as local conditions safely allow.
Preparing Localities for Action Against Novel Coronavirus (PLAN) is a scenario-planning tool that identifies potential US supply and demand imbalances down to the county level.
Even with the federal government’s $100 billion stimulus package for the health care industry, US hospitals will still face significant financial pressures due to COVID-19.
There may be ways to extend or improve the efficiency of care through greater community or regional collaboration. While such initiatives are certainly being contemplated by governments and health departments, individual health systems should also be actively thinking about how to collaborate or partner with others on the front end of this crisis.
