David vs. Goliath: Can employers win the battle?

David won his battle with Goliath because he used tactics that played to his strengths. Can employers do the same?

The David vs. Goliath analogy comes from Robert Galvin, M.D., who will be the speaker at The Alliance Annual Meeting on Oct. 21. Dr. Galvin shared his thoughts about employers as David and broad marketplace forces as Goliath when I heard him speak earlier this year at the Midwest Business Group on Health (MBGH) conference in Chicago.

QualityPath®: Going Beyond ‘Favorites’

We all have times when we rely on “favorites” to simplify our decisions. Without pausing to see what else is available, we might opt for our favorite ice cream or our favorite movie, for example. 

Some people have asked us questions about the selection of QualityPath hospitals based on their perceptions of “favorite” hospitals.  Sometimes the QualityPath designated hospitals are already their favorites; other times, they heard that a hospital on the list was not someone else’s favorite. Learn more in Amy Moyer's blog post.

Opening a Window on Health Care Cost and Quality
