Abstract

The U.S. health system is not sustainable as currently structured--innovation is necessary to fuel reform, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers' report, HealthCast 2020: Creating a Sustainable Health System. But wide-scale innovation--which requires diverse players within the industry to collaborate--is difficult to achieve. In this installment of Straight Talk, leaders from WellPoint, Inc., one of the nation's largest health benefits companies, and FasterCures/The Center for Accelerating Medical Solutions, a think-tank based in Washington, talk about what they're doing to nurture innovation.
