Quote 
"As the industry looks to reduce inefficiencies and improve care coordination, providers and payers need to work hand in hand. These partnerships enable that collaboration while eliminating some of the contract barriers around value-based care. If the merger between CVS Health and Aetna is approved, healthcare executives will likely need to rethink traditional industry competitors as this would establish market competition against national payer UnitedHealth Group and its ownership of OptumRx."

-Bruce Carver, associate vice president of payer services at MedeAnalytics
