Recently a small group of Chief Strategy Officers from health systems in eight states gathered in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for the second annual CSO Summit moderated by Paul H. Keckley, Ph.D., Managing Editor of The Keckley Report and sponsored by Lumeris. The group discussed the future for U.S. healthcare in the next 2-3 years and longer term, specifically around organizational responses to COVID-19, the role and scope of value-based care strategies, and the long-term outlook for healthcare.
Despite the pandemic and uncertainty about the impact of new policies from the Biden administration, strategies remain focused on value, growth, and diversification—all items that are top priorities on most every health organization’s CSO’s list.
All strategists in attendance believe ‘value-based care’ is transformational to the entire health system and a necessary focus in their organizations but think CMS’ alternative payment models have been ineffective in advancing efforts. Most consider provider-sponsored health plans and/or participation in Medicare Advantage better strategies for advancing high quality, affordable care management services.
