Join us at the Fall 2018 Inova Discovery Series: The Impact of Changing Consumer Expectations on Healthcare Delivery on Wednesday, November 7 at 6 pm at the Inova Center for Personalized Health in Fairfax, VA.

Consumer expectations related to healthcare delivery continues to rapidly evolve, forcing health systems and health technology innovators to continually rethink how consumers view the traditional patient-provider-payor relationship.

  • How are consumers shaping the delivery of healthcare?

  • As health insurers are increasingly placing consumers at the center of decision-making, how is industry adapting?

  • How will services be delivered in an increasingly convenient and customer service-oriented manner?

  • What is the role of health systems in supporting the treatment and prevention of chronic conditions today and in the future?

In an effort to answer these questions, Inova Personalized Health Accelerator recently completed a 1,000 person survey on the expectations of consumers in its region.

At the Fall 2018 Inova Discovery Series, we will reveal the results of our survey, including how they impact our view of priority health technology segments.

Following a short briefing, we will host a discussion led by experts representing perspectives from the physician, health system, health tech entrepreneur and health system investor communities.

We hope to see you on November 7!
