2018 is shaping up to be a year of reckoning for health care. While the industry dodged the bullet of full Obamacare repeal, pressure on entitlements will only increase in the wake of tax cuts. Mergers, cost-cutting, retail strategies and other trends in the market are reshaping American healthcare. Meanwhile new technologies and drugs, disruptive innovators, and the rise of AI are beginning to upend traditional players. Dr. Lisa Bielamowicz, President of Gist Healthcare, will identify key strategies for success in the turbulent market—and predict how telehealth will alter the landscape.
