Healthcare Trends & Forecasts in 2010:
Performance Expectations for the Healthcare Industry

The healthcare industry last year focused mainly on the three "Rs" — reform,
reimbursement and readmissions — and wrapped up with a 2,000-page reform bill
on the table. Looking ahead, will the this new year toss out old cost
reimbursement concepts and ring in an evidence- and value-based vision of
reimbursement? After a year of income inertia, which areas hold the most
promise for profits in the months ahead? What influence do employers really
wield in benefit and reimbursement design, and how will the consumer era
change the dynamics of provider performance measurement and rewards?

In Healthcare Trends & Forecasts in 2010: Performance Expectations for
the Healthcare Industry
, two key thought leaders take on these issues and more,
predicting likely winners and losers from the pending healthcare reform
legislation and describing its implications for key stakeholders in the
this new year.

Performance Expectations for the Healthcare Industry

In HIN's sixth annual healthcare industry forecast,
William DeMarco, president and CEO of DeMarco and
Associates and Jim Knutson, risk manager and human
resources director, Aircraft Gear Corporation, analyze the
changing reimbursement conversation and suggest ways to
rethink payment and benefit design to reflect today's
healthcare delivery systems.

DeMarco forecasts the 2010 industry climate for physicians,
hospitals and health plans, including strategies to close
care and business gaps, and suggests likely areas for new
products. Addressing the current status of health reform,
he shares late-breaking developments from Capitol Hill that affect key industry sectors.

Focusing on payment reform, Knutson outlines the PROMETHEUS payment method,
an alternative to traditional fee-for-service reimbursement that uses episodes of care as
the basis for payment and aligns provider payment incentives with risk and rewards.
Aircraft Gear Corporation participated in the PROMETHEUS payment pilot, allowing them
to negotiate the purchase of high-quality, evidence-based care from providers and
incentivize them to avoid potentially avoidable complications.

This report also analyzes the responses of nearly 100 healthcare organizations to
the sixth annual HIN Healthcare Trends and Forecasts survey, in which respondents
ranked top-of-mind concerns for the year ahead and reported their organization's
best and worst business decisions in 2009.

In this forward-looking special report, you'll get details on:

In an expanded Q&A section, Demarco and Knutson analyze the demise of CMS's planned
Medicare Medical Home Pilot and suggest ways to encourage the technology-shy
provider and engage the medical staff in new initiatives.
