Networks: The Future of Health Care Delivery

Medical NetwoksMassive consolidation is occurring in health care.  Insurance companies are merging with other insurance companies.  As we have seen in this market, independent hospitals are joining health systems.  Even independent physician offices are forming entities to give them more of a voice in this rapidly changing environment.

Elsewhere in both the U.S. and Europe, networks are being assembled as a means of improving care coordination, the quality of patient care, and the cost of providing that care.  In many ways, networks are enablers of The Triple Aim, an objective of the federal government and many health systems to deliver population health, improved experience of care, and lower per capita cost.

Come learn about the elements found in new and existing local networks and a peak into the future of Central Florida health delivery.
