The Biggest Healthcare Trends of 2019 and What's to Come in 2020
In our Healthcare Outlook for 2019 webinar, Stephen Grossbart, PhD, and Bobbi Brown, MBA, shared their predictions for the biggest trends of the year. Which predictions panned out and which didn’t? View this webinar as Stephen takes a look back at 2019 and makes his forecast for 2020.
So, what did happen in 2019? Following the 2018 midterm elections, we predicted a divided Congress would not pass policies to strengthen or weaken the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We were right. Meanwhile, Democratic presidential candidates debated the extent to which they would support Medicare for All. Insurance costs continued to rise, breaking $20,000 annually for families with employer-sponsored coverage, and CMS continued to support payment policies rewarding quality and interoperability as part of their payment policy.
Join Stephen as he looks in the rearview mirror at these important issues and how they impacted the healthcare industry in 2019 and then gazes into the crystal ball to predict the trends that will most impact healthcare in 2020. In this webinar, Stephen discusses the following topics and more:
• The continued focus on price transparency.
• Congress’ efforts to control prescription drug costs.
• Policies that may change the future of ACOs.
• What to expect going into the 2020 election year.
