As economic pressures increase, stakeholders at every level of the health care system are discovering that trying to do the same thing, but on a lower budget, will only take them so far. New models of health care delivery are emerging, old models are under siege, and financial risk for the costs of care is being pushed outward from insurers to providers. Will these new models for care delivery and for payment endure? And how can academic medical centers adapt? This live-streamed meeting explores emerging risk in health care through three sessions: disruptive new ventures, innovative payment methodologies, and creative care delivery models.

Opening Talk: Leemore Dafny, PhD, Harvard Business School, Event Chair


Health care today includes key players at different stages of development: early-stage, growth, and maturity. New entrants are bringing innovative approaches to care delivery – but will they have a sustainable impact? Medicaid is a source of growth, but can it break even or possibly be a source of sustainable profits? Finally, for two centuries, academic medical centers have been the bellwether of the hospital industry. These mature businesses are adapting their strategies to remain centers of excellence.

Session 1: New Entrants – Breaking In Is Hard to Do


Innovators add vibrancy to the market by targeting specific segments and creating higher value offerings to meet market needs. They also create pressure on more traditional organizations to develop new models. Many fail. Some don’t. Two leaders of successful new entrant companies discuss the aspirations, the challenges and the moxie required to succeed.

Session 2: New Business Models – Making Medicaid Work


Medicaid is the nation’s largest health insurer, but federal-state cooperation means 51 different approaches. Many providers think of it as the worst paying payer under fee for service models. However, Medicaid is transforming. The head of Arkansas’ innovative Medicaid program will join the leader of a large managed care services provider to share insights on how to deliver quality care on a tight budget.

Session 3: New Strategies – How AMCs Can Compete


Leaders of two of the nation’s leading academic medical centers will debate how their organizations – and all traditional hospitals – can continue their historic excellence in care delivery while adapting to a changing market. Traditional hospitals are challenged with multiple market shifts. Yet their position in the health care market as the providers of outstanding, quartenary care has never been more central. What will AMCs become, and what must they give up, to stay competitive?
