The New World of Healthcare

A transformation is occurring in healthcare as we move from “Industrial Age Medicine” where professional care was the primary focus to “information age healthcare” where individual self-care will be the norm with professionals performing the role of facilitators, partners and authorities. On this panel we will explore what these trends are, how they affect the industry and the kind of innovations, systems and companies will emerge to make this a reality.
