In the new world of healthcare finance running a coalition involves the identification and satisfaction of consumer needs and provider needs. Value generation of enhanced patient outcomes involves digital apps, video and print communication so as to guide time/resources toward more effective results. As a Cornell University Professor in 1982, Dr. Eastaugh worked with the AMA American Marketing Association to "getting patients into more cost-effective channels of service distribution." Dr. Steve Eastaugh could set the stage to the current trends, including economic and social data concerning consumer behavior. And as a medical center professor for 37 years Dr. Eastaugh understands the value systems of the healthcare professionals with whom we are collaborating. Topics include the different criteria for the measurement of success; the unique challenges of consumer behavior; and provider behavior. When done correctly, a coalition makes care more affordable for consumers, and outcomes enhanced for all parties. The focus is on keeping in step with the marketplace. We must better balance all forms of service delivery and information delivery to achieve the best results for all.
