Summary
  • A trend in the health care industry is the influence of payors applying downward pressure on health care costs. Most hospitals have prospered under the Diagnosis Related Group (DRG) portion of the Prospective Payment System (PPS). Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) enrollment is on the rise and is expected to reach 35 percent of the total population by 1995. The current health care system results from decreased expenditures, declining prices, and strong cost containment. Investor owned multi-hospital systems are forming into regional networks, and a horizontal integration is necessary to attract enrollees. Vertical integration is necessary to gain a large base which can justify development of a full continuum of care. Physician involvement with HMOs-PPOs is increasing as payors assume more control of patient flow, and patient involvement is increasing as traditional patient-provider roles continue their shift in new directions.
