Event Details

Healthcare in the US costs nearly $3 trillion annually or around 18% of GDP. These massive costs deleteriously affect our companies and competitiveness. Changing technology, including biotechnology, and reform greatly affects these costs. From individuals to counties, tackling healthcare challenges is thus now the norm.

In this event, “Problem Solving in Healthcare,” the Healthcare Professionals Network New York (HPN NY) and NYC Bio bring to you thought leaders within healthcare consulting. These are the people who advice healthcare stakeholders, run the scenarios, vet the strategies and give those unfortunately detailed yet correct answers “it’s complicated.” Come and learn about problem solving and decision making in healthcare through a panel discussion.

“Problem Solving in Healthcare”

In this moderated panel, healthcare consultants will discuss typical issues faced by their clients ranging from providers to large pharma companies, and present a case-study that required out of the box problem solving skills. A Q&A session and a happy hour will follow the panel discussion.

Event panel members include:

  • Sam Murphy, Principal, IMS Consulting Group
  • Paul Mendelsohn, Chief Operating Officer, Loeb & Troper LLP
  • Tom Yang, Sr. Manager, Monitor Deloitte
