Stanley Hupfeld
Stanley Hupfeld
With almost forty years of award-winning healthcare leadership experience, Stan Hupfeld brings into focus the problems existing in healthcare today and the solution for our future. Historically, health care delivery has tended to be transactional and unidirectional-in other words one doctor-one hospital stay-one insurance bill. In a post reform world all bets are off requiring a different kind of thinking when we begin to take a risk(read premium dollar) for the total care of a patient population. In that environment we must be much shrewder and have a different approach with the other stakeholders understanding why healthcare seems to defy our best thinking about how to change it and what policy alternatives give us the best hope of survival.

    Distress signals are starting to sound in two of the country’s major sectors, retail and healthcare. Last week, the discount shoe retailer Payless ShoeSource filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and announced it will close 400 brick-and-mortar stores throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. The announcement comes on the heels of a seemingly unending parade of bad news from traditional retailers in recent months. So far this year, Walmart, Macy’s, J.C. Penney among others, have all announced significant store closures. Ralph Lauren is shuttering its flagship Polo store, a foot-traffic magnet on tony Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, the latest step in a massive cost-cutting effort.

  • magnifying-glass-1001506_640The payment landscape is shifting dramatically in the US health care industry and this has serious implications for the survival of providers. With the volume-to-value transformation, traditional fee-for-service payments are being replaced with a financial incentive framework that rewards for improved quality and outcomes. Although this impacts only Medicare payments today, it lays the groundwork and provides strong incentives for other payers to move in the same direction, thus potentially disrupting the health care system at all levels.

    Ultimately, value-based payments transform traditional business models by putting significant revenue– and risk– at stake. Building the outcomes-based financial models to maximize value-based care (VBC) reimbursement pathways will be fundamental to sustainable growth in the future.

  • health-2082630_1280We are living through what is arguably the most challenging time for the health care industry. Globally, health care appears to be on a collision course with patient needs and economic reality. No one is happy with the current system, and the combination of rising costs, poor access, inequitable care, and diminishing quality and safety has created anxiety and frustration for all. Decades of interventions have failed to improve the situation; if anything, things have become worse. Current approaches tend to focus on a single issue or problem (the price of drugs, rising numbers without medical insurance, provider incentives to over treat), but an overarching solution has remained elusive.

  • US Medical care illustrated by flag and stethoscope

    There is no issue more important to the future of America than it’s long-term fiscal sustainability. And the long-term fiscal sustainability of the United States has been placed in jeopardy primarily by the structure and expense of America’s healthcare system. According to the Congressional Budget Office, nearly the entirety of the growth in federal spending as a share of the economy—excluding interest—can be explained by government health programs: Medicare, Medicaid, the Medicaid-related Children’s Health Insurance Program, and the Affordable Care Act. In addition, one of the principal economic challenges faced by middle- and lower-income Americans is the expense and instability of American health insurance.

  • Happy group of adult friends having fun

     3 Reasons Why Staying Social Matters to Your Thinking

    How many friends do you have? Do you rarely see family, go out for the evening or join your community for an event?

    You may not realize it, but your social life may just be bad for your brain.

    In the immortal words of Bette Midler, “you’ve got to have friends.” Little did the Divine Miss M know that in addition to our souls, she was hitting a high note on brain health as well.

    A recent AARP survey found that adults 40 and over with a higher number of social connections report better brain health.

  • American Health Care Act

    After a seven year wait to repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s signature health care law, the GOP’s much-anticipated replacement collectively called the American Health Care Act (AHCA) was unveiled this week. Amidst a revolt from the left and right, doctors, hospitals and insurers, the plan cleared its first hurdle at 4.30 am on Thursday- approval by the House Ways and Means Committee and The House Energy and Commerce Committee after 18 and 27 of hours of debate respectively. It now has to be approved by a full House and the Senate…the former likely (although not guaranteed) and the latter impossible without bipartisan support.

  • fixing the drug pricing problem

    The one thing that all Americans agree on – politicians included- is that prescription drug prices are on an unsustainable trajectory. Americans pay, by far, the highest prices for prescription drugs in the entire world. On average, Americans pay $1,100 per year for their drugs — $300 more than Germans or Canadians do. In addition, total US drug spending has more than doubled in the past 15 years, from $121.2 billion in 2000 up to nearly $374 billion in 2014, squeezing both payers and insurers alike……all of this while the largest pharmaceutical companies are cumulatively earning $80-$90 billion per year in profits at higher margins than other industries.

  • The 2016 election is over, and a top priority for the new administration and Congress is healthcare. The candidates discussed little substance about healthcare during the campaigns, despite the fact it is approaching 20% of our economy and touches every American. You could say the problems in healthcare have been caused by action by one party and inaction by another party. You could say Republicans want this and Democrats want that, but I don’t think labeling should be the focus. The problem is Congress (both parties) are tied to special interest groups. Insurers, medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and the plaintiff’s bar, along with Congress created our unaffordable healthcare system.
