Rising health care prices have increased concerns about hospital and health system consolidation among policymakers, regulators, employers, and other purchasers of health coverage. With support from the National Institute for Health Care Reform, CHIR experts published a series of six market-level, qualitative case studies assessing the impact of recent provider consolidations and overall provider concentration, the ability of market participants to respond to those consolidations, and effective strategies for constraining cost growth while maintaining clinical quality.
