Consolidation: Where Do We Go From Here?
The US healthcare system is consolidating at an increasing pace. Healthcare systems tout the benefits of consolidation in the form of cost savings and other operational efficiencies. But consolidation also has its costs: independent providers are being disrupted by larger systems, the larger systems themselves face higher risks, and the consumer may not always benefit. This panel will explore the pros and cons of consolidation from the perspective of consolidated systems themselves, providers that choose to remain independent, and the healthcare consumer.

Disruption in the Marketplace: The Retailization of Healthcare
Consumers are utilizing retail clinics, urgent care centers, ambulatory surgery centers, concierge services and freestanding ERs to get medical care when and where they want it. The healthcare marketplace is forcing providers to rethink their business models beyond the four walls of traditional healthcare facilities. The new reality is that healthcare is taking on a consumer-centric, technology-enabled retail model, in the name of improving outcomes and lowering costs. This panel will explore how to create a Consumer Brand Experience in today's evolving healthcare marketplace. Every aspect of your organization from your stories, your online presence, mobile solutions, services and physical environment, should be an extension of your brand and what you do remarkably well. For healthcare providers, a well-defined Consumer Brand Experience means bringing your brand promise to life consistently, across every location where you market and provide services to your consumers.

The U.S. Health Care Industry: A Look Ahead at What to Expect
Health care is a complex industry undergoing disruptive changes that require every organization to re-think its strategies for growth and sustainability. These strategies also require risk-taking. The five areas that must be monitored to stay abreast are (1) clinical innovations, (2) technology, (3) access to and deployment of capital, (4) regulation and (5) consumer attitudes and actions. In this discussion, we'll focus on how organizations can monitor these trends and address their implications, including how organizations and individuals are addressing liabilities associated with their health costs.
