Healthcare Trends & Forecasts in 2014: A Strategic Planning Session

Steven Valentine, president of The Camden Group:

"We're seeing more growth now in commercial bundled payment. We expect in 2014 that HMO commercial will grow slowly, along with growth in PPO and direct to employers. We should see some growth in insurance exchange, but maybe less than possible. When you look at 2014, you need to get your access points aligned with the various market segments."
