Are doctors ready to compete with Walmart? Dr. Lisa Bielamowicz says the old rules don’t apply anymore.
“Bielamowicz said that employer health care coalitions have made only incremental progress in the past — using group purchasing to negotiate lower prices on prescription drugs, for example — but have failed to produce transformative ideas.”
“’If we were to define 2018 so far, it would be the year of the disruptor,’ Bielamowicz said.”
