Com­pe­ti­tion or col­lab­o­ra­tion?

Joel Al­li­son CEO Bay­lor, Scott & White

On why the 2013 sys­tem merger suc­ceeded: We both had a very sim­i­lar mis­sion. We both were com­mit­ted to qual­ity. We both had a vi­sion of mov­ing to pop­u­la­tion health and de­ploy­ing the triple aim. We both had a vi­sion of go­ing to a fully in­te­grated de­liv­ery net­work model that we thought that was very much the fu­ture.

Daniel J. Hil­ferty CEO In­de­pen­dence Blue Cross

If health­care is a right, we have no choice but to around shar­ing data col­lab­o­rate be­cause it’s about putting that in­di­vid­ual pa­tient at the cen­ter of ev­ery­thing we do… (Yet) com­pe­ti­tion is im­por­tant. Com­pe­ti­tion is what will make the sys­tem bet­ter. But it doesn’t mean that we can’t ap­pro­pri­ately col­lab­o­rate wher­ever pos­si­ble.

Peter Fine CEO Ban­ner Health

Get­ting the cost per unit of ser­vice down from a merger of two vastly dif­fer­ent cul­tures and vastly dif­fer­ent busi­nesses is not an easy trick. They may have dif­fer­ent kinds of skill sets. So big is not bet­ter un­less you’re ac­tu­ally cre­at­ing some long-term ad­van­tage from the com­ing to­gether.
