Competition in Health Care One of the trends marking the continuing transformation of the U.S. health care industry is the dramatic increase in the pace of competition. The heightened competition is taking place among hospitals, health plans, physician groups, and drug companies, and between physicians and hospitals, and hospitals and health plans. Listen to the Looking Ahead: The Future of Health Care Policy podcast from National Public Radio (NPR). Then, prepare a three- to five-page paper in which you: •Describe the different forms of competition that take place among various types of health care organizations.
•Evaluate the benefits and pitfalls of competition in health care and suggest alternatives if competition was not the primary driver of operations in the U.S. health care system.
•Explain the elements of successful competition and the use of competitive intelligence.
•Describe the influence competition has on the services offered by health care organizations and the choices patients have.
