  4. Market force #1: The new economics of healthcare reform “The federal budget is on a dangerous, unsustainable path. Federal debt will rise to unmanageable levels, which will endanger our prosperity… we must take immediate steps to reduce the unsustainable debt that will be driven by the aging of the population and the rapid growth of healthcare costs.” The National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, November 11, 2010 4
  5. Volume vs. value economics Today providers are rewarded for 23% of Medicare Patients volume based transactions on individual patients. Reform models reward value based on episodes of 5 of more chronic conditions care and outcomes:  Bundled payments 12 different physicians  Pay for performance 50 prescriptions per year  Accountable care  Medical homes 68% of Medicare costs  Coordination of care 5
  6. Regardless of reform mandates . . . • National debt issues are not going away • Health care expense growth rate is too high • Labor shortages for physicians, nurses will happen • State budget deficits will reduce Medicaid payments • Downward pressure on Medicare rates will continue • Payers will reimburse providers based on cost and quality • CMS quality payment initiatives in place 6

  11. Strategic intent is clear . . . “We have heard from key stakeholders across the health care landscape – including CEOs of health plans and major employers – who have visited our ‘Well Experience’ stores. The No. 1 comment I hear is, ‘This is exactly what we need. How fast can you do this?’” Gregory D. Wasson, CEO, Walgreens "It's acute episodic care now, but it's moving to full primary care. The dream is to expand into chronic-disease management. That's a huge part of the cost of health care. We haven't figured it out yet, but we will." Hal Rosenbluth, president of Walgreens Health and Wellness "Whatever does or doesn't happen is good for us. If reforms are adopted they're going to need providers. We're a provider. And if a new health-care law doesn't pass, there will be more people in need. And we're affordable, even when paying cash."

  25. Market force #5: Growing, graying, connected consumers • 2011 was significant in that it marked the first year that baby-boomers began turning 65; and for the next 15 to 20 years, about 10,000 people will turn 65 years old every single day. 25
  26. Boomers will be the driving force for healthcare services in the coming decades . . . . . . not just for “what” is delivered but “how” it will be delivered  The first wave of the boomer generation is generally satisfied with their lives and optimistic about the next third of life  And they also have age-related health concerns similar to their parents when they were 65  However, in some very important ways boomers turning 65 are different from their parents — particularly when it comes to ideas about retirement, expectations about customer service, taking control of their own destiny, and connectedness to information and resources. 26
  27. Social networking isn’t new, just different • The impact of web, social networking and mobile technologies cannot be underestimated in its influence on how growing, changing, graying Americans access information, communicate, and connect with brands and services. • Aging Americans have unprecedented access to information about health care, and growing expectations for the service conveniences of on-line appointment setting, communications with physicians and personal medical records. 27
  28. Not just a Florida and Arizona issue People 65 and Older • 39.6 million in 2009, representing 12.9% of the U.S. population – 1 in every 8 Americans • Darker areas on the map are regions where the percentage of people over 65 exceed the average • By 2030, there will be about 72.1 million older persons, more than twice their number in 2000 and will count for nearly 20% of the population. 28
  29. Implications for the workforce Dramatic Shift in Age of Workforce – 2000 to 2010 Younger Workers Older Workers 25 - 44 45 - 65 29
  30. Focus of the CMO  Move front and center in the realm of customer intelligence, and dig deeper to gain meaningful insights into aging consumer needs and behaviors.  Assess aging trends and demand implications in your marketplace and help leaders understand both the opportunities and challenges of these developments.  Define aging segments and growth opportunities, identify wants and needs, and drive niche strategies, services, and program development.  Help your organization understand that the new “senior” will demand more choices, be less tolerant of bad service and inconveniences, won’t necessarily follow doctor’s orders, believe that 70 is the new 50 . . . and expect to be treated accordingly. 30
