Health-care reform an opportunity for insurers

School of Management Professor Stephen Davidson, author of the soon-to-be-published “In Urgent Need of Reform: Saving the U.S. Healthcare System”, says that rather than resisting it, insurers could make the drive toward health-care reform an opportunity by transforming themselves into real managed-care organizations. 

“They can create or contract with group practices, invest in information technology, analyze utilization patterns, and help physicians deliver reliably good, cost-effective care.  This will enable them to not only define a constructive role for themselves in a new system, but also develop the capacity to add real value to the medical-care enterprise.”
