Soon “Their” Financial Liability Too

What Was Once Profitable For Healthcare Providers Will Soon Be “Their” Financial Liability Too

“In the United States, the top 1% of high-cost patients consumes 28% of total health care costs, and the top 5% of high-cost patients consumes more than 50%. These patients are also the source of a substantial amount of revenue and contribution margin. As provider incentives move towards fixed payments, these high-utilizing patients will become the five-alarm fire: In the foreseeable future, what was once a profitable or breakeven proposition will become a significant financial liability.” – http://blogs.hbr.org/2013/11/tackling-the-hotspotter-patient-challenge/?socl=social_20140920_31981156
