The U.S Health Care System is Changing

The US health care system is in a time of unprecedented change at the local, state, and national levels. The expansion of insurance coverage, the shift from payment rewarding volume of services delivered to alternative payment models based on the quality of outcomes achieved, and changes in financial incentives are providing critical opportunities to focus attention on improvingpopulation health.

The HST Webinar Series

This webinar series will explore the history of health system change and describe key drivers and trends that influence current decision making among the major players in the field (health insurance plans, employers, and clinical providers).

Webinar 1: Introduction to Health System Transformation and the Health Insurance Market, will provide an overview of the health care landscape, including the major insurance types, stakeholders, patient population characteristics, and trends.
