Healthcare Industry Competitive Positioning for 2011

Healthcare Industry Competitive Positioning for 2011

Despite continuing impacts from the economic conditions of the past two years and industry changes stemming from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, there are many opportunities for healthcare organizations to improve their competitive positioning in the coming year, according to William Shea, partner, health industry consulting for Cognizant Business Consulting and Steven T. Valentine, president, The Camden Group.

Shea and Valentine shared these opportunities as well as trends they expect to impact the industry in 2011 with participants in last week's webinar Healthcare Trends in 2011: A Strategic Industry Forecast.
