Simulating the Impact of Healthcare Reform

Date: Wednesday, December 8th
Time: 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. ET

Healthcare reform, as embodied in the Accountable Care Act which was signed into law by President Obama in March, 2010, will have a profound impact on the healthcare economy. Assessing the impact of the changes in insurance coverage on individuals, businesses, insurers, and healthcare providers across the nation will be critically important to all members of the healthcare value chain. McKinsey has developed a proprietary modeling toolkit to assess the impact of the ACA on coverage called MPACT, which is a granular, dynamic, behavioral simulation model that simulates the impact of health care reform over time on the decisions individual consumers, payors, and employers will make.

Applying the Insights of Behavioral Economics to Healthcare

Date: Wednesday, December 15th,
Time; 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. ET

Much of the rising cost of healthcare is attributable to the growing incidence of behaviorally induced chronic disease. Yet getting individuals to make better healthcare choices or stick with healthy habits is hard, particularly since individuals are beset by a number of emotional and cognitive biases that distort "rational" decision-making. By understanding these biases, healthcare payors and providers alike can help individuals "put down the doughnut" and make better choices about their health, thereby helping manage spiraling healthcare costs.
