Fighting for their slice of the $3.5 trillion health care pie, these companies often seem to leave the consumer out of the equation. But it is not the case across the board. Writing for The Health Care Blog, ACHP’s Ceci Connolly explains that research conducted by ACHP found that when doctors and health plans drop their guards, align incentives and focus on the mutual goal of delivering the best possible care, patients win.
