Swiss Re Corporate Solutions Healthcare Risk Management Update

Episode 5: Retail healthcare - Further fragmenting the system or improving access, quality, experience and costs?

Retail healthcare is transforming the US healthcare landscape. "Big box" stores are becoming larger players and offering an increasing breadth of services. Yet this recent trend doesn't necessarily mean further fragmentation of an already complex system. Recent partnerships between retailers and health systems or other organizations have the potential to enhance American healthcare as a whole.

In the latest Healthcare Risk Management Update, Mike Midgley hosts two experts from the Advisory Board Company: Jim Bonnette, MD, Executive Vice President and Strategy Practice Lead, and Michelle Yu, MPH, Director. They discuss:

  • The evolution of retail healthcare in the US and what to expect in the next few years
  • How the growth of retail healthcare impacts hospitals and hospital systems
  • Ways health systems and retailers can work together to control costs and improve access, quality of care, and the patient experience
