NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthLeaders-InterStudy, the leading provider of managed care market intelligence, shares insights into the evolving U.S. healthcare landscape to help industry executives make the best decisions. As millions of previously uninsured people prepare to enroll in health insurance plans and gain access to pharmacy benefits, companies across the country are searching for clarity around the inherent implications for their business. Understanding the politics, the players and the prevalence of risk-based contracting—by market—will be crucial to capturing opportunity. HealthLeaders-InterStudy's newest Executive Briefing, entitled "Sifting through the Noise: How the Exchanges and ACOs are Changing Healthcare Dynamics in the U.S., One Market at a Time" walks through two states' plans for state exchanges—California and Texas—and then explores the ACO landscape in two markets—Boston and Birmingham.

"In order for healthcare reform to succeed, doctors and hospitals must move at an accelerated pace into risk-based contracts that reward them for efficiency and better outcomes," explains Ms. Sellmeyer. "We will see radical change with significant implications—not just for the pharmaceutical industry—but across businesses that touch U.S. healthcare."
