By Gregg A. Masters, MPH

Powerful comments, insights and commentary by a visionary leader at United HealthGroup offered at the Digital Health Summit at CES 2012 in Las Vegas. While Dr. Tuckson spoke of ‘population management’ and an ‘all in’ commitment to ultimately tame and redesign a delivery and finance system that works, the gist of his comments were quite favorable to the growth and development of accountable care initiatives both in the government and private market sectors.

  1. That’s a good insight, population management would be the key for both the developed and developing world. Improvement in health standards can be brought about only by population management

    1. Regardless of your idealogical persuasion, inaction is no longer (and hasn’t been for quite some time now) an option. The more proactive thinkers and doers in the space are busy making it happen. Whether the individual mandate is struck by the Supreme or not, innovation will continue. Shifting from an episodes of care delivered in discontinuous silos framework to a population management perspective is a immense improvement in both outlook and psychology. Thanks for your comment!
