From Opening Session to Opening Doors in Under 12 Months
What would you do with your business model if you could start fresh? Now with that answer in hand, how do you get your idea to become reality? Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City asked these questions about health care, found its answer, and in early 2017 launched the implementation team. Less than 12 months later, in January of 2018, the first Spira Care Center saw its first patient. In this presentation, two members of the Spira Care core team will walk through their experiences in creating a new way for health care providers and an insurance carrier to partner together to deliver an improved experience for members (and providers!), control the total cost of care, and increase efficiency in all areas.
- Describe the importance of various elements of the health care delivery model
- Summarize the market and regulatory constraints that impact innovation
- Distinguish between technology innovation
- Critique an innovation strategy for potential risks and pitfalls
- Extrapolate from this experience to one's own innovation strategies
