Bursting the Bubble - Meet 4 Healthcare Disrupters

Webinars are a member benefit. To register, login and proceed to Webinar Registration under the Members tab.

Welcome to 2020! Much has changed in healthcare, but much remains the same. Electronic health records are everywhere, but data doesn’t move from system to system. Patient populations are managed, but we still struggle to engage patients as active participants in their own health. Health plans still have the same claims processes. Patients are still handed clipboards when they go to the doctor. But what if Walmart gets into the insurance and provider business, offering low-cost coverage and services akin to a mini-hospital at any store in the country? What would it mean to pharmacies and wellness providers if Amazon creates a closed loop system of virtual care using Alexa, PillPack, and Whole Foods? What if Google leverages its enormity of data with artificial intelligence and machine learning to target interventions, engagement and costs; extracting even more data from provider voices while eliminating the burden of note-taking and paperwork? Or, if Apple uses its consumer-facing technologies, such as the Apple watch, as building block to a new consumer ecosystem? Join us for this exploratory session on some of our industry giants that are poised to lead disruption of healthcare and business as we know it.

Target Audience: Operations, Financial Mgmt., Organizational Governance, IT, Marketing, Leadership and Management, Physician and Non-Physician Providers, Personal and Professional Development
