DENVER, March 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Two leading healthcare strategists take on one of the healthcare industry's growing dilemmas – how to successfully pivot to a consumer-centric model. On March 18, 2015, join a thought-provoking webinar that will expose the long-term risk of many health plans' short-term strategies amid a consumer revolution.

Who: The webinar will feature ="https://twitter.com/@_JeffMargolis" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Jeff Margolis, one of the industry's most successful health IT entrepreneurs and chairman and CEO of Welltok, and Tom Main, a leading health strategist and managing director of the Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Center.

What: This free webinar will explore how the rise of the healthcare consumer will impact current business models and the opportunities for all stakeholders – payers, providers, employers and consumers – to benefit from revolutionary new business designs. Margolis and Main will debate and discuss why health plan incumbents may resist change, and how they can become heroes in healthcare's transformation.

"It's a classic dilemma. On the surface, health plans are doing better than ever – generating returns and insuring more consumers. So why change?" said Margolis. "We'll be exploring why a consumer-centric model is not only important for future success, but an opportunity for companies to prosper."
