“Our #USEconomy in a nutshell? We are a huge insurance company w a bunch of tanks and planes!”- @LisaB_MD
#physicians need to use their voice for advocacy for our practices and our patients”- @LisaB_MD
#Hospitals have basically been built in the past as ‘#Surgery Factories’ for #BabyBoomers “ - @LisaB_MD
#Healthcare has to do a dual ‘trick’ in the next 10yrs. We have to take care of the high utilizer #BabyBoomers more cheaply while at the same time deliver instant service in new platforms to #Millennials “- @LisaB_MD

In 2019, there are now more Millennials than Boomers
“The government and insurers want to leave #HealthcareProfessionals and Hospitals to ‘Hold the Bag’”- @LisaB_MD
“For the avg guy on the street, our expensive insurance doesn’t cover their #health costs. That person CAN’T pay the gap/co-pay bill even if they wanted to”- @LisaB_MD
“Holding the bag is painful, but it’s also powerful and important for our pts for us to be holding the bag. We have to figure out how to ‘own’ the Senior Care life”- @LisaB_MD

There is an increasing privatization of #Medicare
@Optum ,an insurance company, is now the largest employer of physicians in the country!”- @LisaB_MD

...but something @WalmartInc this way comes!

“They’re trying to make #healthcare cheaper, so that we can buy more ‘junk’ from them!”

WalMart knows better than us what ppl want
“We have to think about the sectors of #healthcare consumers. Some will ride the bus. Some will buy Hyundai. Many are in mid-range sector. Some will want a Maserati. Rarely is a Maserati in healthcare really needed”- @LisaB_MD

...but cost reduction isn’t any fun!
“We in THIS room need to figure out how to make it better and more affordable for our patients. @bswhealth_Templ really has the ability to do this!”- @LisaB_MD
“We have to stop thinking about #healthcare as ‘events’. Event health sucks! Put it into a seamless service that is useful for the patient. @bswhealth_Templ is poised to do this well”- @LisaB_MD
“You at @bswhealth_Templ have built the engine already for aligned #MemberHealth. Most groups out there are still a loose confederation.”- @LisaB_MD
