The Uncertain and Exciting Future of Health Care: Exploring a New Realm of Possibilities

This fast-paced and informative presentation shows how and why health care will change more in this decade than it did in the previous 50 years.  From a practical perspective, it explores strategic implications of the unprecedented revolution in medical science, transformational capabilities of information technology, the hidden impact of demographic shifts in the US population, and the economy’s role in restructuring supply and demand for medical services.  Reform of the delivery system is examined from these perspectives, with recommendations tailored specifically to the audience’s position in the medical marketplace.

A Realistic Update on Health Reform: Responding to Challenges and Opportunities

Everyone agrees that the current health care delivery system is unsustainable, but there’s no consensus on common solutions to the underlying problems.  This future-focused presentation evaluates the range of competing approaches to reform — from government intervention to private initiative — and provides audiences with an independent perspective on strategies that their organizations can take to succeed in a turbulent marketplace by improving efficiency and effectiveness.

The Art and Science of Looking Ahead: Upgrading the Crystal Ball for Creating a Viable Future

Based on the speaker’s newest book (Summer, 2012), this unique presentation shows audiences how to make strategic changes through informed analysis of actual trends and possible outcomes. It explains the major difference between predicting and forecasting and shows why forecasts must replace predictions as our way to evaluate where we are headed and how to get there successfully.  The presentation identifies resources and makes recommendations appropriate for any organization that wants to expand its realm of future opportunities for success in a turbulent marketplace.
