2) In the absence of healthcare reform what should the industry be doing to revolutionize the healthcare financial network? Do consumers play an important role in this (consumer demand)?

# # # #

3) How can banks partner with healthcare groups to advance the “health-wealth” paradigm for the consumer?

Standards important. How to achieve? Who maintains? CORE standards example not widely adopted (failed?) MasterCard|Visa model came up with a mapping approach--Which works well for their business case. Incentives (why). Need a process. (Cost of money example; who gets the float?; play the game to get paid; friction costs because of the adversarial relationships). Data showing the difference between cost and price of procedures. Adjudication at time of service would help with catching fraud.

"CEGIS" (sp?) FSA adjudication

Health behaviors data collection (PHRs) to enable analytics to drive the culture of health management (like pension fund managements tools)

HCIA; Subimo

Dean Health is a key financial asset

Radiologists would be a good case study of providers
