Health Care CEOs All Say a ‘New Model’ Is Needed But Differ on What It Looks Like

Health Care   |   November 16, 2018
Carlton Fields health care attorney Marguerita Brunson Sims was featured in the Tampa Bay Business Journal article, “Health Care CEOs All Say a ‘New Model’ Is Needed But Differ on What It Looks Like.”  The article recaps a recent roundtable discussion regarding the state of health care in the region.
 
Top executives from local health systems, doctors, and other industry professionals spoke at length about the fine balance between providing quality care to consumers and being responsible fiscal stewards to the company.
 
Many of the participants remarked that the health care industry is currently not designed to be the most efficient or effective.
 
All agreed that there is unnecessary construction, gaps in access, high costs, extreme regulation, and siloed information, among other issues.  
 
Sims agreed that the health care system is not set up for the average person to understand their own health, but stated, “Over the long term, I think it will equalize. But you’ve got to put the money into the system to see it kind of work its way through.”
