There is no shortage of alignment issues out there but no healthcare issue today is reviewed without cost being the overarching theme. Each stakeholder has some of the data needed to answer questions about what’s working, for whom and at what cost. The healthcare system is starting to reform and that is due, in part, to the incentives that have been put in place. However, incentives only work if the person is actively choosing between the undesired behavior and the incentive. In this session, panelists will describe ideas to align incentives and improve supply chain efficiency. Success stories of collaboration and transparency will illustrate how business incentives can be aligned across the continuum.
1. Describe ways providers and suppliers can share risk to reduce waste and save money.
2. Define techniques to align incentives in the supply chain.
3. Identify some radical ideas that can lead to behavior change.
