Prevailing attitudes about the future suggest that the health care industry is either approaching a new equilibrium or reverting to the pre-pandemic mean—but Advisory Board believes that the future is still unwritten, for the moment. While most health insurance providers were generally stable throughout the pandemic and used excess strategically to make principled (rather than reactive) investments, leaders in other sectors are now finding themselves with their own unique—but time-limited—opportunities to shape that future.
This presentation will explore what health insurance providers need to know about key structural shifts of the peri-pandemic period that may play out in different directions, depending on the actions taken by stakeholders across the industry in the near future. These include new price transparency requirements, value-based payment, physician alignment, virtual care, home-based care, and health equity.
