Market Dynamics Driving the Dialogue

“There has been notable growth in health system-owned specialty pharmacies in the last four years, with 70% of IDNs reporting having a specialty pharmacy in 2019, up from 39% in 2016. HIRC estimates that up to 85% of IDNs could have their own specialty pharmacy by 2022.”

— Health Industries Research Companies, 2019

“About 30 million lives are covered by IDNs’ captive insurance plans, which represents nearly 10% of the insured U.S. population.”

— ZS Associates, 2018

“The shift towards value-based care is most often identified as the top market trend impacting IDNs as government and commercial payers continue to grow alternative payment programs, and in some cases are accelerating the pace to downside risk.”
