While our national political leaders struggle mightily with health care reform, innovative leaders in the private sector, many of them in Wisconsin, have hammered out a new business model for the delivery of care. And they are saving money with the new model. They have pioneered four waves of reform:
- Employer adoption of self-insurance to replace group insurance
- Consumer-driven health plans that establish incentives and disincentives for smart behaviors.
- Proactive primary care, often delivered on-site at the workplaces or near-site.
- Value-based purchasing of treatments.
John Torinus has used his company, Serigraph Inc., as a beta site for these waves of reform. He contends that the striking results should inform the stymied attempts at reform in the nation’s capital.
