The Future of Health Systems
Health Systems are going through major change brought on by different market entrants and disruptors. In addition, significant changes in regulation and policy at the state and national levels have added to the complexity. A case study will illustrate how these changes are happening amid an industry that is being digitized and focused on the consumer.
