Health Care Leaders Discuss Delivery in NY

(L to R) Richard J. Donoghue, president and CEO NYULMC; Karen Ignagni, president and CEO EmblemHealth; Robert Abrams, former New York State Attorney General and Chair of Stroock’s Government Relations Practice Group; Dr. Scott Cooper, president and CEO, St. Barnabas Hospital; and Charles Moerdler, Co-Chair, Stroock’s Litigation Practice Group.

Health plans, physicians, hospitals and other practitioners are part of a fundamental shift in the delivery of health care to a system that is more efficient and innovative. EmblemHealth’s market leadership in value based health care was recently recognized at the Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP Government Leadership Forum. The conversation focused on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) — ObamaCare — and its implications for the delivery of health care in New York.

EmblemHealth President and CEO stated that “The discussion has shifted from volume to value. This is an important step for people’s peace of mind as they get into the system. The emergence of urgent care centers is good for competition — it puts pressure on hospitals to be more efficient.”

Guest panelists also included Dr. Scott Cooper, President and Chief Executive Officer, St. Barnabas Hospital and Richard J. Donoghue, Senior Vice President for Strategy and Business Development, NYU Langone Medical Center.
