Healthcare Trends & Forecasts in 2013:
Performance Expectations for the Healthcare Industry

With the reelection of President Barack Obama all but sealing the fate of healthcare reform, healthcare organizations can return their attention to ACA provisions and business opportunities in the year ahead.

Healthcare Trends & Forecasts in 2013: Performance Expectations for the Healthcare Industry, HIN's ninth annual industry forecast, provides sector-specific guidance for the next 12 months from three key thought leaders.

In this eagerly anticipated annual planning tool, Steven T. Valentine, president of The Camden Group, returns to parse the industry landscape for healthcare providers. He covers the top-of-mind issues for physicians and hospitals, including the new mantra of IHI's Triple Aim, and the emergence of continuum-driven and integrated delivery systems like accountable care organizations, clinically integrated networks and the new business and payment models that support them.

To prepare payors for the year ahead, Valentine is joined by Hank Osowski, managing director of Strategic Health Group, and Dennis Eder, also a managing director at Strategic Health Group, who suggest how health plans can best position themselves for a profitable 2013.

Healthcare Trends & Forecasts in 2013: Performance Expectations for the Healthcare Industry

Osowski and Eder assess the regulatory environment, earnings potential, industry consolidation, health insurance exchanges and opportunities related to care coordination and population health management, particularly for dual eligibles.

The advice in this 35-page resource is supplemented with data from HIN's ninth annual HIN Healthcare Trends and Forecasts survey administered in October 2012. More than 150 responding healthcare organizations identify the top issues facing them today, predict the impact of 2013 ACA mandates on business, and share the best and worst business decisions of 2012 and the lessons learned from both.
