In health care today, working across sectors is an imperative. Current challenges facing the health care system — including rising costs, poor outcomes and the slow adoption of innovation due to outdated policies — cannot be solved in silos. Collective action holds the greatest opportunity for generating change and creating sustainable solutions.
This great opportunity is in many ways already being realized — as payers work closely with providers to better understand population health management; physicians work with pharmacists to address medication nonadherence; and life sciences companies partner with patients to capture real world outcomes of their products.
As a diverse, multi-stakeholder organization dedicated to identifying, analyzing and resolving critical health issues, The Network for Excellence in Health Innovation (NEHI) is one place where collective problem solving continues to happen.
This year, NEHI is expanding its annual event to others interested in coming together — as one health care — and confronting critical issues, including the role of health care in the 2016 election, financing breakthrough innovations, payment reform and innovation in oncology.
The meeting will feature a breakout session on how alternative payment models may impact personalized medicine in oncology. Titled "The New Era of Oncology: Standardized Payment, Personalized Medicine," the session will feature Gary Gustavsen, Vice President, Health Advances, and Vincent Miller, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Foundation Medicine, who will discuss whether personalized medicine is at risk of being left behind in a world in which value-based care models aim for standardization.
