Toolkit: Evaluating Market-Shaping Enterprises
In the universe of health care vendors, there are market-takers and market-shapers. Market-takers accept health care market dynamics as they are; market-attempt to upend the status quo with strategies that alter the incentives that govern health insurance and care delivery. Some of these vendors offer a full suite of third-party administrator (TPA) services; others offer innovative network, benefit design and contracting models but do not pay claims. That’s why CPR calls these vendors Market-Shaping Enterprises (MSEs).Buy
