Change is the only constant when it comes to the healthcare industry. Many had hoped for some clear direction with regard to healthcare reform in 2017 that didn’t materialize, and as we kick off 2018, proposed large-scale mergers such as Aetna and CVS offer the potential for new, further disruption.
Nevertheless, the industry has proven adept at moving ahead with transformation strategies in the face of uncertainty. The view that executive compensation (and particularly the use of long-term incentives) can be a tool to enact strategic business changes is taking hold, and boards of directors are rising to the challenge of guiding their organizations in entirely new directions.
