Each year, healthcare executives rely on the strategic advice they receive during the annual Healthcare Trends & Forecasts webinar sponsored by the Healthcare Intelligence Network.

This annual, must-attend event provides a first look analysis at the key trends and opportunities for healthcare organizations in the coming year.

With the industry moving ahead to implement the upcoming requirements of the Affordable Care Act following the Supreme Court decision to uphold the law, a noticeable jump in the formation of accountable care organizations and new healthcare delivery models, including the patient-centered medical home and bundled payment programs, healthcare organizations have much to monitor in the year ahead.

Listen to pre-conference comments from Hank Osowski.

This year's session, Healthcare Trends & Forecasts in 2013: A Strategic Planning Session, a 60-minute webinar on October 17, 2012, now available for replay, features Steven Valentine, president, The Camden Group, Hank Osowski, managing director of Strategic Health Group and Dennis Eder, also a managing director at Strategic Health Group.

Now in its ninth year of providing healthcare executives with a look ahead to help shape strategic plans, this year's program covered:

  • How the economic environment is continuing to impact the healthcare industry, in terms of the unemployment rate, the uninsured and underinsured, access to credit and soft volume for healthcare services;
  • How healthcare organizations can prepare for the health reform changes required in 2013 and 2014, including the health insurance exchanges and the dual eligible coordination of care pilots;
  • The impact of the current regulatory environment on hospitals, health plans and medical groups;
  • How ACOs, the patient-centered medical home, bundled payments, narrow networks and efforts to bend the cost curve will impact the industry in the year ahead;
  • How the consolidation of hospitals, medical groups and health plans is impacting the industry;
  • The impact of the 2012 presidential election on the healthcare system;
  • What healthcare opportunities exist and what actions are needed by healthcare organizations to have a successful 2013; and
  • much, much more!

His views on some of the challenges facing the healthcare industry were published earlier this year in "Payers and Providers."
