Dr. Richard R. Batsell
Associate Professor of Marketing,
Jones Graduate School of Business

Dr. Marc Boom will provide an overview of the issues our nation faces regarding health care delivery including the elements and impact of health care reform and other health care trends. He will talk about why those in the industry have a responsibility to lead efforts to transform our delivery system, to help influence health related policy, and design new ways of delivering care that provides value while keeping the patient at the center of all we do. In the second half of the presentation, Dr. Randy Batsell will be describing a new methodology for analyzing health care cost data. The methodology, Cost Difference Decomposition Analysis, is particularly useful in explaining differences between health plans, or any other groups of organizations, which pay the bills from physicians and hospitals for care received by the covered patients.
