Faculty discuss how health systems evaluate neurosurgical practices for purchase or alignment; the role of private and group practices in the hub-and-spoke model of health care delivery; how to align with accountable care organizations without becoming an employee; and managing the impact of publicly-available practice data and outcomes information. By predicting the future of health care, neurosurgeons should be able to position themselves strategically to lead the way using decision-driven change management.
