What to do about the rising cost burden for patients
A recent study found that, on average, US households’ annual insurance premiums are averaging $10,000, and have an $8,000 deductible on top of that—should they need care. A recent Becker’s Hospital Review article showed an even higher price tag, with the combined employer and employee contribution approaching $20,000 a year.
This burden, and emerging patient consumerism and more careful attention to cost, is changing healthcare. We hope you will join us on Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018, from noon to 1 pm CST, for a Becker’s Hospital Review webinar, What happens to healthcare as more of the cost burden shifts to the patient?
I will be joined by my Infor colleagues Mark Weber and Zan Miller, as we lay out the challenges faced by the entire healthcare industry, especially the current lack of insights into the true costs and resources involved in caring for patients. We will talk about solutions we can all employ now, including:
- Overcoming the technological hurdles to cost quality integration
- Aligning clinical and business operations to achieve greater value
- Gaining stakeholder engagement in the mission of affordable care delivery
- Empowering caregivers with actionable insights to improve affordability
- ….and more
The presentation will also provide time for you to ask the questions most important to you, no matter where you are on the care continuum. We hope you can join us. You can register here.
