Partners or Predators?
Meet the Guests:
This episode features three leaders previously interviewed on The Gary Bisbee Show. Listeners will hear from: Pete McCanna, CEO, Baylor Scott & White Health; Steve Glass, President and CEO, Medical Mutual, and Richard Pollack, President and CEO, American Hospital Association.
Our guests offer commentary on how new, for-profit entrants are changing the health economy.
What Do Consumers Demand? Legacy systems must evaluate the prospect of building partnerships with the new large-cap entrants to provide customers with what they demand.
Capital and Profit. New entrants are finding market inefficiencies, which brings innovation. The danger is disintermediation and fracturing of the care continuum.
Predatory Practice. Mr. Pollack sees promise in the potential for partnering, but he warns that for-profit models neglect poor and under-insured populations.
