CNBC.com has published a blog post from Humana President and CEO Bruce Broussard related to waste in the U.S. health care system.
Humana researchers recently completed a multiyear study, and it was published this month in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Among Bruce’s points are these:
• The Humana research reveals $1 out of every $4 spent on health care in the U.S. annually is being wasted.
• A new value-based model needs to be adopted in the industry.
• It must be an integrated approach that includes behavioral health, pharmacy, social determinants of health, home health and primary care.
