Consolidation and integration continue to drive the Springfield market with the proposed merger between Tufts Health Plan and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. In the provider sector, Baystate Health remains the dominant health system, with more than half of the market’s inpatient discharges. Trinity Health of New England is working to become a viable alternative to the market leader by launching a clinically integrated network that links the system’s Massachusetts providers with those in Connecticut. Expect the new network to offer niche, value-based care as it expands across the region. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting all healthcare sectors. Elective patient volume plummeted at the onset of the pandemic, challenging providers financially. As the market adjusts to the continued presence of the coronavirus disease, expect health systems, physician groups, and insurers to use their experience to enhance their delivery systems through telemedicine, innovation, and payment reform.
