DENVER, Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Welltok today announced that it will be hosting a free webinar with Jeff Margolis, chairman and CEO of Welltok and Tom Main, partner and founder of the Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Center. The webinar, "2016 Healthcare Industry Predictions and Consumer Activation" will take place on Wednesday, November 18 at 1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT.

While 2015 brought the consumer to the forefront in terms of focus, 2016 will be the year for consumer activation, interaction and communication. Margolis, one of the industry's most successful health IT entrepreneurs and Main, a leading health strategist, will discuss and debate their top predictions for the healthcare industry in 2016 around how to activate the consumer.

The focus is shifting from beyond the "patient" to include the "consumer" in the healthcare industry, but we still have a long way to go in terms of understanding who those consumers are, how to best reach and engage them, and how to connect them with the right products and services at the right time. Margolis and Main's rapid-fire discussion will include predictions on the biggest changes and opportunities in the year ahead. They will also share perspectives on how the industry has come a long way, but fallen short in terms of understanding consumers to truly drive engagement and outcomes. Other topics include:

  • The convergence of health and wellness, and what the future looks like
  • The implications of price transparency and the transformation of care models
  • The inherent risks and opportunities of big data, machine learning and cognitive computing

Who: Jeff Margolis, chairman and CEO of Welltok & Tom Main, founder and partner of the Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Center

What: This free webinar will explore the predictions for healthcare trends in 2016 with two healthcare industry veterans and thought leaders
