What’s Going to Happen to Healthcare? – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

There are not many subjects that everybody is an expert on. But healthcare is one of them.

Many people’s opinions about how healthcare should be provided are formed as a result of interactions with the healthcare system that have involved large sums of money and had less than optimum outcomes.

On this edition of Out to Lunch Peter Ricchiuti is talking with two experts about the healthcare system as we know it, and as we might see it evolve in the near future.

Steven (Dr Steve) Udvarhelyi

Dr. Steven Udvarhelyi, known far and wide as simply “Dr. Steve,” is President and CEO of Blue Cross/Blue Shield Louisiana.

Blaine Lindsey

Blaine Lindsey is Executive Director and Chairman of a new kind of patient-centered healthcare company, an Accountable Care Organization, called Aledade Louisiana.

We all know healthcare is changing – it always seems to be changing – but it’s changing in surprising directions most of us know little or nothing about. 

Blaine Lindsey, Steven (dr Steve) Udvarhelyi, Peter Ricchiuti

If you’d like to back up your opinions with some facts about healthcare this is a great conversation to listen in on.
