  1. 1. THE QUEST FOR VALUE IN HEALTH CARE: A PLACE FOR CONSUMERS In a health care system where consumers are empowered to actively choose among health plans, providers, and treatment options, delivering a satisfying customer experience is key to differentiation. The first step towards winning in a consumer-centric marketplace: understand how this new informed and engaged consumer views the health care system and how they define quality and value. Three key disruptors are emerging that place the consumer center stage in health care: To read more about these findings, the survey methodology, and for steps industry stakeholders should consider to help win in a consumer-centric health system, visit www.deloitte.com/us/questforvalue. As consumers take on more health care costs and choice-based health markets develop, value will become a driving force that shapes consumers’ perceptions, decisions, and long-term relationships with health care providers, payers, and other stakeholders. Value, for consumers, increasingly extends beyond price to include the quality of the patient-family experience and interpersonal interactions. **Source: Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

As costs rise, so do concerns With nearly half of all respondents reporting increased out-of-pocket spending, only 1 in 5 consumers surveyed feels prepared for future health care costs. Customer service and bedside manner are highly valued, yet often lacking 2 in 3 respondents cite customer service as a primary source of dissatisfaction. A generational sea-change is coming Millennials and Generation X are the most likely to do research on price and quality before agreeing to receive treatment. Price + quality = value** The consumer value equation is a combination of price and quality. So how do consumers define “quality care”? o Providers who take their time during an appointment o Providers who are easily accessible o Providers who exhibit a good bedside manner as well as demonstrate knowledge and technical proficiency ! $ $ The health care system through the eyes of the consumer* *Findings based on results of the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions 2013 Survey of U.S. Health Care Consumers except where noted with ** Employer risk-sharing and enhancements to support consumer choice 2 Improved accessibility to quality ratings and price information 3Emergence of choice-oriented insurance 1 #QuestForValue Follow @DeloitteHealth Deloitte Center for Health Solutions The consumer of the future will be informed, engaged, and equipped.
