The CEO Role. Stakeholders inside and outside of the company look to the CEO to be the voice of the organization, and establishing trust is key.
Managing Risk. Insurers understand the benefit of moving to value-based care, but it’s important to monitor and manage financial risk as health systems move in that direction.
A Capitalist Society. Steve remarks, “If somebody’s coming into your market, it’s because they see an opportunity.” Providers and Payers need to innovate to meet the challenge.
