The U.S. healthcare system is broken. Most healthcare stakeholders now are willing to admit that, and many are actively trying to fix it—or at least starting to talk about what it would take to do so. Many of the recent consolidations and vertical integrations are the involved parties’ attempts at solving for links in the healthcare chain that they previously had no access to, or influence over. Now three giants from corporate America are looking to wade deeper into healthcare delivery to see if they can make some fixes for their employees—and for themselves.

In the cat-and-mouse co-pay card game, payers have made their next move.

The wheels of a car in need of an alignment point in different directions and effectively begin working against each other. As a result, the vehicle works inefficiently, which negatively impacts the driver’s experience and increases the financial pain he feels at the pump. If the problem is ignored for too long, his ability to safely operate the vehicle can become compromised. And when the car is operating at a high speed, the misaligned tires could have devastating consequences, making steering difficult and potentially leading to a crash.

Are we already patient-centric simply by talking about patients? Do patients define themselves by their medical conditions or by their roles in life as parents, family members or colleagues?
These were just some of the many questions discussed amongst participants at ZS’s European Summit, which took place in Basel, Switzerland, on Oct. 12.
