New Healthcare Networks - Trend & Implications Pharmacy Podcast Episode 222

Interview with Kelli Kovak – Consultant to Healthcare Insurance & PBM Industry

[The expansion of health networks- the trend and the implications]

The idea that increased collaboration among rural healthcare providers could benefit both the collaborating organizations and the communities they serve is not new. In the past, collaboration among rural pharmacies, hospitals, and insurances has been advocated as a "strategic response" to the challenges these facilities face.

However, with respect to participation in multi-healthcare networks and health systems - the actual "SAVINGS" and data - offers little evidence that such arrangements yield significant benefits for rural communities, pharmacies, and hospitals.

How will new health networks benefit the business of pharmacy?

What's the impact to patient choice?

How does private pharmacies stay connected & competitive?
