Healthy Debate: Top Health Quotes of 2016

Pulled from recent interviews and articles, below is a collection of heath care quotes that well frames where we are in health care and perhaps where we are headed in the future.


  • “We can’t subsidize a market that doesn’t appear at this point to be sustaining itself.”

    Stephen J. Hemsley, CEO, UnitedHealth Group, Inc.


  • “In any large organization, there is a very strong resistance to dramatic change…...And there are a lot of people in a very large organization that try to protect the company from the nut in the corner office.”

    Mark Bertolini, Chairman and CEO, Aetna


  • “…We’re being paid for delivering value for health care as opposed to looking at volume, and that shift is a huge, huge change. And that is driving all kinds of resulting activity and consolidation, and doctors being employed and different players entering into health care delivery……So we’re seeing enormous changes going on, and that’s not going to end quickly. That’s going to be a 15-year – at least – journey. We’re at six already.”

    Toby Cosgrove MD, President, CEO Cleveland Clinic


  • “Value requires interoperability, data analytics, and improved care inside and outside the traditional physician office and hospital - taking advantage of home health services and wearable technologies.”

    Roy Beveridge MD, Chief Medical Officer, Humana


  • “If the solution is not built upon the way real people think, feel and act, then meaningful and lasting engagement is unlikely.”

    Randall Williams, MD, CEO, Pharos Innovations


  • “We know that few corporations offer lifetime retirement income streams, and fewer still continue to provide retiree health insurance. Medicare, Social Security and government-provided LTC are facing insolvency. So public provision is inadequate, and it is likely to be challenged further as the population ages.”

     Olivia Mitchell, Professor, Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania
