Why Pricing Transparency Won't Affect Hospital Pricing

Why Pricing Transparency Won't Affect Hospital Pricing | Healthcare's New Operating System | Scoop.it
If there's a single piece of architecture that symbolizes our "Down the Rabbit Hole" view of healthcare pricing – the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas, Nevada (designed by Frank Gehry) is a pretty good candidate.
Leonard Kish's insight:

“Bigger isn’t always better, but when it comes to healthcare we’re finding that it usually is. Doctors, hospitals and medical centers across America are looking for ways to collaborate, consolidate and merge their resources. They’re discovering that high volume medical centers can produce better outcomes for many procedures, and more effectively and efficiently provide care across a whole spectrum of services. Medicine is becoming a team sport.” Delos Cosgrove – CEO and President at Cleveland Clinic (Article: The Great Consolidation Begins)

UnitedHealthcare Makes $50 Billion Wager On Accountable Care As Obamacare Looms | Healthcare's New Operating System | Scoop.it
UnitedHealthcare will double to $50 billion annually over the next five years the value of contracts it has with doctors and hospitals based on quality and outcome measures, chief medical officer Dr. Sam Ho says.
Leonard Kish's insight:

Ho says it all. "We are shifting from a volume-based payment model to value-based. The American health care system cannot afford to go back."

Ho said.  “This is not a passing fancy for us. The UnitedHealthcare strategy basically has expanded the accountable care concept to an accountable care platform.”

The value of big data in health care = $450 billion

The value of big data in health care = $450 billion | Healthcare's New Operating System | Scoop.it

Exploiting Big Data in industry is Big News these days, and nowhere is the potential for leveraging the concept greater than in health care. McKinsey & Company estimates that harnessing big data across five dimensions of health care could yield nearly one-half trillion dollars’ worth of value in The ‘big data’ revolution in healthcare.

 

The chart summarizes McKinsey’s calculations on the value of Big Data in health care at its maximum.

 

Before digging into the value potential, just what is Big Data in health care? Statistics and information are generated in the health care system about patients: say, during visits with physicians, in lab tests, via digital imaging procedures, when filling prescriptions, and during inpatient hospital stays.

 

All of these data points “live” in various data systems: in physician office records systems (in paper files and, increasingly, in electronic health records, or EHRs), pharmacy claims systems (housed in systems managed by pharmacy benefits management companies and health plans), hospitals’ information systems, and — for people who self-track data at home and on-the-go but don’t communicate it to health providers, in consumers personal health records in the internet cloud (say, via the Withings Wi-Fi weight scale or Fitbit online portals).
