Ten Health Care Imperatives for the Decade Ahead Webinar Series

In a new webinar series, Manatt Health hosts dynamic roundtables with leading innovators on the ten imperatives key to improving health care over the next ten years. 

In a recent white paper, Manatt Health examined the ten health care imperatives critical for improving the health care system and achieving health equity. The paper shares strategies and actions to advance health care that will be more vital than ever as we emerge from the pandemic. Now, we will lead deep-dive roundtable discussions with thought-leading innovators from across the health care ecosystem. You’ll learn new approaches, bold ideas and best practices from some of the industry’s most creative thinkers and problem solvers.

The confluence of the public health emergency, economic crisis and racial justice reckoning has put in sharp focus that health equity is a foundational imperative for all health care organizations. Our discussion will focus on ways organizations across different sectors in health care can integrate health equity commitments into strategic development—and ensure health equity remains a priority for the decade ahead. Panelists will discuss opportunities for aligning equity with other core strategic priorities, including quality and community engagement, and examine the role of anchor institutions, the Medicaid program, health plans and other health care constituencies in addressing systemic factors that lead to health disparities.

COVID-19 exposed the growing crisis faced by our safety net organizations that serve a high percentage of Medicare, Medicaid and uninsured patients and are reimbursed at levels that threaten their continued viability. The problem faced by these vital organizations is structural, meaning that the current payment and delivery system is built upon incentives which cause organizations that predominantly serve the safety net to face ongoing, persistent financial stress undermining their stability, as well as their ability to serve their communities effectively. The webinar will discuss the actions needed at the federal and state levels to deliver the funding necessary to strengthen the safety net and ensure that institutions which are deeply rooted in their communities are given the resources and tools to address the staggering access and equity issues laid bare by the pandemic. It also will examine the urgent need to support safety net institutions as anchor institutions in their communities whose roles as employers, purchasers and conveners is critical to advancing health in communities of color.

The COVID-19 pandemic has cast a harsh light on the extent to which factors such as homelessness, food insecurity, and economic instability —collectively referred to as social determinants or drivers of health —are integral to health and health equity. Efforts to address drivers of health are growing, but remain diffuse, episodic and grossly underfunded. This webinar will explore specific strategies to integrate drivers of health interventions into the health care continuum to improve health outcomes, reduce health care costs and promote health equity. It will highlight potential state and federal policy changes on the horizon, and feature speakers who are leading the way in thinking creatively about scalable, sustainable change.

Disruptions to health care, education and community life due to the pandemic have been devastating for the health and development of our nation’s children. After decades of improvement, compliance with recommended well-child pediatric visits has plummeted. The webinar will review how missed or delayed screenings, diagnoses or treatments can have impacts reaching into adulthood. In addition, it will explore how the pandemic has exposed the most critical issues affecting the health care of our children, including disparities in access, gaps in social and emotional health supports, insufficient behavioral health capacity, and other challenges that link to higher risks of adverse childhood experiences that can have lasting effects. The session will address the actions needed in the decade ahead to address these issues and the strategies we must establish now to put children, particularly our most vulnerable children, on track to reach their fullest potential.

Long-term care is becoming a pressing societal issue as growing numbers of people living with disabilities or chronic diseases increase demand. The 65-and-over population is projected to increase 50% by 2030, and those over age 85 are the fastest-growing segment of older Americans. The session will focus on the effect of COVID-19 on populations using long-term care and the impacts on the long-term care system. It will address creating and implementing new care delivery solutions, including new home-based care models and increased use of technology, that enable people to maintain their autonomy with greater private- and public-sector support services. It also will discuss key strategies for the coming decade, including expanding innovative home- and community-based services through Medicaid and better integrating long-term care with the rest of the health care system.

Digital health adoption has skyrocketed during the COVID-19 pandemic, and this surge in use now has the potential to transform health care. In April 2020, telehealth utilization represented nearly 15% of all ambulatory services in the United States, up from less than 1% pre-pandemic. The webinar will share new approaches for achieving the full potential of digital health, including designing and actualizing new digitally enabled care delivery models that look fundamentally different than their in-person predecessors. It will detail the key roles that all health care stakeholders—government, payers, providers and life sciences companies—must play to close the digital divide, enhance access and care, accelerate adoption, and bring new solutions to market.

Academic health centers are recognized for their multimission commitment to clinical care, research and education and their capacity to produce innovative solutions to health challenges. The program will highlight the groundbreaking ways that academic health centers have stepped into the breach during the pandemic to create COVID-19 tests, lead community coordination efforts and support effective vaccine distribution. It also will provide a road map to help academic health centers make the vital transformation into learning health systems focused on population health, caring for the whole person (including physician and behavioral health needs), reflecting the diversity of the populations they serve, and leading the changes needed to achieve health equity in their communities.

Scientific advances in understanding how to manipulate genes to alter the course of disease are now starting to bear fruit. Cell and gene therapies will bring hope to those with conditions once thought to be incurable or irreversible. The webinar will discuss the complex business and political challenges that pioneering life sciences companies face in pricing their products in the United States and around the world. It also will look ahead to the new tools both public and private payers will need to develop in order to ensure appropriate access while keeping an eye on overall budget impacts.

When the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted in 1996, there was virtually no Internet utilization, smartphones or artificial intelligence. During the past 24 years, the health data landscape has been remade—with vast amounts of personal data now being collected—but the scope of the privacy rule has not changed. The program will explore developing a comprehensive federal health information privacy framework that reflects the realities of 2021 instead of 1996 and allows innovation without the confounding complexity caused by highly variable state laws. It will define a new privacy paradigm, with clear rules for the collection, disclosure and use of data.
