Oklahoma City | Oklahoma | 2019 | Market Overview (Event Driven)

Publish date: February 2019

Oklahoma City’s major health systems and hospitals are strengthening access to care across the region with brick-and-mortar expansion projects. Consolidation is also on the rise with both health systems and physician groups acquiring facilities. Pharmacy retail giant CVS Health has also closed its deal to buy Aetna in a move that could change healthcare delivery locally and nationally. Federal care coordination and payment reform models are driving collaboration between health systems, physician groups, and payers. Pressure to contain costs under the model could promote greater adherence to drug regimens, which bodes well for pharma.
