A recap of Freed Maxick Healthcare’s latest event and a look at key industry trends

With the rapidly transforming healthcare industry, Freed Maxick recognizes that technical capabilities and practical knowledge are only part of the bigger picture. Extensive knowledge of financial, clinical, regulatory and operational matters is essential for leadership to navigate the complexities and communicate with key stakeholders. Our dedicated Healthcare Practice makes it a priority to be aware of the latest industry trends and to identify and predict best practices that will provide the greatest value-add for both the client and the population cared for.

The ability to educate our clients on the latest information industry trends is a key differentiator and is among the top reasons we have earned the trust of our clients. A great example: in mid- November, the team held an interactive panel discussion on transforming our healthcare system featuring three prominent local industry thought leaders covering three prioritized health agendas. This panel discussion helped attendees gain important insight into the changing market.

Moderated by myself, Carol Cassell, a Principal in Freed Maxick Healthcare’s Strategy & Performance Improvement practice, the event panel included Dr. Michael Edbauer, DO, MBA, Chief Medical Officer, Catholic Medical Partners, Mike Mancuso, Associate Partner, Lawley Benefits Group, and Ann Monroe, President, Health Foundation for Western and Central NY.

Some of the best insight we have to share stems from the organic conversations that unfold during events such as this.  Panel trends and topics included:

  • Positioning for the future: population health management

  • The changing health insurance market

  • Health insurance benefit plans: What has changed?

  • Community health

  • Medicaid \ Medicaid redesign

  • Living in a world of volume- and value-based revenue

  • Alignment and integration: strategies, tactics and real life lessons learned

  • Data: The new asset for decision making and performance management implications

Event guests experienced the professional, and sometimes very personal, insights of our panelists who have deep knowledge of different facets of the healthcare system. Ann Monroe discussed patients’ desire for a more personal and holistic treatment experience. Community health programs becoming the epicenter for holistic treatment with a person- and patient-centric approach, with Dr. Edbauer discussing certain model programs in New York State. Lastly, there was a great deal of discussion focused around consumers taking a more proactive approach to their healthcare. Mike Mancuso discussed how employers are increasingly incentivizing their staff to make smarter choices.
