DENVER, Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The healthcare industry has undeniably been undergoing a transformation over the past several years. Among the biggest change is the evolving role of the consumer as they take on more financial responsibility for their health and demand greater affordability, convenience and choice. As the consumer revolution gains momentum, it begs the question – where do we go from here?
On December 10, 2014, join two leading healthcare strategists as they discuss how the rise of the consumer will change the healthcare landscape and provide predictions regarding how the industry will transform over the next three years. Some of the topics to be covered include: the de-siloing of healthcare, increased market transparency and the emergence of new network models.
Who: The webinar will feature 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 the rise of the healthcare consumer and what this means for players in the healthcare space – from payers and providers to retailers and innovative digital health companies. Margolis and Main will discuss and debate how to enable, not just empower the consumer; the need to break down barriers in healthcare; and when the "gadget pageantry" will come to an end. "I believe the major missing element of the healthcare system that will spur change is the involvement of the consumer – as a consumer, not just as a patient," said Margolis.
