Event description

Description

Everyone understands that the U.S. healthcare system has become far too complicated, fragmented, wasteful, and frustrating. The harm to patients and caregivers is unacceptable, the cost to this nation is unsustainable and the oncoming disruption is unavoidable. This presentation will appeal to employers that are struggling to control healthcare costs, to healthcare leaders who want to disrupt their own organizations before it is done to them, and to the rest of us who simply want the system to support our attempts to live longer, healthier lives.

In this session, Aaron Fausz, Ph.D and Terry Howell, Ed.D will explain how they have collectively brought 50 years of healthcare experience and significant research together to create a book that attempts to quantify the magnitude of the problems of our “sick care” system, describe the current forces that are driving the disruption and offer practical guidelines for developing a true “healthcare” system where caregivers and institutions are paid to keep people healthy as well as intervene safely and efficiently when they are sick. The established healthcare business model is justifiably under assault, and this book is intended to be a practical, easy-to-understand guide to help leaders initiate and sustain disruptive, breakthrough transformation.

Autographed copies of their newly published book, Healthcare is Killing US: The Power of Disruptive Innovation to Create a System that Cares More and Costs Less, will be given to each participant in attendance. Their goal in writing the book was to paint a picture of consumer/patient-centric health care-where the consumer is in the center and in control, where health and wellness are lifelong pursuits for everyone, and where healthcare is more accessible and affordable to all.

Please park in P2 in the oneC1TY parking garage.
