10 Healthcare Trends for 2019: A Year of Struggles for Many with Great Opportunities for Some

Industry Insight Webinar

Presenter: Robin Rose, Vice President, Healthcare Resource Group for HealthStream

The healthcare industry as we have known it is disappearing. A multitude of factors such as ever-increasing prices, growing numbers of seniors, serious provider shortages, and a lack of affordability, even for many with good insurance, are driving change. New technologies, such as artificial intelligence, are slowly infiltrating the industry. Disrupters like Amazon are seeing opportunity amidst the turbulence, and usage and practice patterns are changing dramatically as the industry attempts to move from fee-for-service to value-based care. Although change always takes a bit longer than we think or expect, it is inevitable in this case. When we look back in 10 years, healthcare practice and delivery may be unrecognizable from what we experience today.

In this webinar, we will explore ten key trends for 2019 that are driving this transformation. Some of the topics we will discuss include:

  • The role disrupters such as Amazon are likely to play in changing the way healthcare is delivered.
  • How new technologies such as artificial intelligence will be used to transform everything from the delivery of patient care to the way we communicate with healthcare providers.
  • Why consumers have now become more afraid of the cost of healthcare than of illness itself.
  • How shortages of doctors and nurses are forcing us to re-think how care is going to be delivered in the future.
