The Advisory Board’s 2020 State of the Union

Sept 24, 2020

In a year when the public and political spotlight was already focused squarely on health care, the COVID-19 pandemic has only intensified the level of scrutiny on the industry. Although the conversation continues to focus on issues surrounding coverage and affordability, COVID-19 has introduced a new dimension—resilience—to the discussion, as well. The Advisory Board’s 2020 State of the Union examines the emerging focus on resilience by breaking down how purchaser motivations are shifting, and how the core structural elements of the delivery system could and should evolve as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, including:

  • developing, manufacturing, and distributing supplies and pharmaceuticals
  • educating, compensating, and organizing our clinical workforce
  • designing, configuring, and deploying our fixed cost assets
