  • Aerial_View_of_Singapore

    Singapore’s health care system is distinctive, and not just because of the improbability that it’s admired by many on both the American left and the right.

    It spends less of its economy on health care than any country that was included in our recent tournament on best health systems in the world.

    And it spends far, far less than the United States does. Yet it achieves some outcomes Americans would find remarkable. Life expectancy at birth is two to three years longer than in Britain or the United States. Its infant mortality rate is among the lowest in the world, about half that of the United States, and just over half that of Britain, Australia, Canada and France.

  • blogHealthcare in the USA and across the globe is in crisis! We are plagued with erratic quality, unequal access, and sky-high costs. The good news is that we are on the cusp of radical change – we’ re in the midst of an avalanche of converging technologies in medical science, software, hardware and communications and this perfect storm is transforming medicine and healthcare in ways that sounded like science fiction a mere decade ago. This is giving medical professionals, patients and key industry players the unprecedented ability to make appropriate healthcare more accessible, affordable and humanistic.

    Patients, physicians, pharma and regulators would do well to face these profound changes, as their lives and their industries will not look the same after they have transpired.

  • 61761844 - medicaid word cloud concept

    Medicaid is in the news every day. People, politicians, policymakers, providers, and payers are expressing points of view ranging from kill it to expand it. Unfortunately, most people are not well informed about what Medicaid is. I would like to help on the informing part of the issue by describing what it is, how it works, who qualifies, how much it costs, and some policy choices I see. This is a very complex subject, so I will lay it out in bite-sized posts. Consider this first post as a backgrounder. If you want to dig deep into the subject, I recommend visiting The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

    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.
