Can Big Companies Put a Lid on Health Care Costs?
David Muhlestein provided insights into employers opening campus clinics and an entire medical plan. David noted that in order for companies to take such an approach, they need employees located in one area and a health care partner that is committed to improving patient health. “For starters, companies need thousands of employees in one place, usually a city, said David Muhlestein. Then their healthcare partner needs to be committed to improving patient health, rather than just offering a discount to win a big client.” According to David, “There are not a ton of providers who are really well positioned to make those changes.” The commentary was cited in four publications: Fiscal Times article entitled “Can Big Companies Put a Lid on Health Care Costs?” here; Reuters article entitled “Fed up with rising costs, big U.S. firms dig into healthcare” here, re-printed in New York Times here; and Newsmax article entitled “Big US Firms Tackle Healthcare Amid Disgust Over Rising Costs” here.
