NEXT Event - October 1

HealthcareNEXT: Consumerism and the Patient Pocketbook

A patient's perspective on health care options is rapidly changing with a greater demand to understand health care's value proposition. With the advent of high deductible plans, increased transparency of service, access, quality and price, health care is being driven by patients as consumers more than ever before.

The power of choice is causing disruption in how health care is accessed and delivered, especially as patients are increasingly responsible and accountable for their health care expenses.

This panel discussion will explore the evolving role of the patient as a consumer and the implications of these changes for the industry, through the lenses of population health, patient empowerment and accountability, and behavior change.
