Provide an objective analysis of the biggest trends and market forces impacting hospital and health system strategy

In this year's research, we examine the most important strategic questions facing health care leaders as we emerge from the acute phase of the Covid-19 pandemic. We'll discuss major shifts in influence, purchasing trends, and health policy in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and start of the Biden presidency. We'll also explore which structural elements of the health care industry remain in flux-and what steps leaders can take to inflect the direction and pace of change.

Learning Objectives:

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

• Understand how the pandemic has (and hasn't) shifted the dynamics of influence and power across the health care industry-not only between industry sectors but also within them.
• Identify what the combined forces of the pandemic, Biden administration, and Democrats' narrow majority in Congress mean for the future of the health care purchasing landscape.
• Understand which structural elements of the industry are in flux during the peri-Covid-19 era, especially the future of telehealth, home-based care, value-based care, transparency, physician partnership, and health equity.
• Plan actionable steps to shape the trajectory of the major structural shifts underway right now.
