The Economic Impact of Health Transformation
Trine Tsouderos and Benjamin Isgur, Directors, Health Research Institute, PricewaterhouseCooper
The emergence of digital tools and services – along with a swelling ocean of data – has the potential to disrupt healthcare dramatically, in the U.S. and abroad. Progress is being made in the realm of digital healthcare, driven by the ambitions and resources of powerful new entrants such as tech firms, retailers and telecommunications companies. Consumers also will drive this shift by rewarding health organizations that can deliver care as conveniently, transparently and affordably as banks provide financial services and retailers offer shopping. The speakers will discuss the character and magnitude of these changes, and what they mean for stakeholders both new and traditional.
