Three types of alignment for better payer-provider relations
After decades of shifting the economic burden and risk, it makes sense for payers to align themselves with those who control 85% of costs.
For providers, it makes sense to accept responsibility for the health and well-being of the patients they care for and share the risks and rewards of good outcomes. And reducing bureaucracy and inefficiency makes sense for everyone involved. It is easy to get overwhelmed by the magnitude of the problems we face in healthcare. But it is possible to break down the problems into smaller pieces on which we can take action.
