Dr. Rita Numerof, Numerof’s President, spoke most recently on Contracting with Employers.

With margins under pressure, few hospitals can afford to ignore the question of what employers want from healthcare delivery organizations. Whether the context is DTE (direct to employer) or a commercial narrow network, understanding how employers make decisions about providers is growing more important daily.

Most recently, Rita brought together a panel of Fortune 500 executives who shared their companies’ health care purchasing strategies, how they define value in health care and the steps they’re taking to enhance it. The membership found the session eye-opening, and so will yours!
