Healthcare’s reach is not only global, but local, with a focus on patient centrality, growth, and integration, all while aiming to achieve meaningful outcomes. Clinical effectiveness is a journey and not a destination amid the realization that healthcare is a capital-intensive undertaking, regardless of where care is delivered. Balancing financial health against operating losses, debt management, mergers and acquisitions, and myriad other market forces is a team sport. With the Federal Reserve determined to quickly rein in inflation, recession looks increasingly likely. But is it inevitable? What would have to happen to avoid a downturn? Business leaders, consumers, and workers alike are voicing deep anxiety and uncertainty about the future. If a recession occurs, how severe and long is it likely to be? Join Mark Zandi, Moody’s Analytics Chief Economist, as he discusses how the next few years will unfold.
