Consumer Directed Health

[Registrations will be accepted at the door.]
The New Revolution in Healthcare and How to Take Advantage of it
This panel will discuss consumer directed healthcare and how companies can capitalize on the opportunities it creates

For the first time in US Health history, there is a movement to make the healthcare agency problem disappear by aligning the party who pays for services with the party who receives them. It is a burgeoning market worth today $50 Billion on the insurance side alone but projected to grow to $400 Billion by 2010...

What types of changes are consumers driving? How can you capitalize on these opportunities?

Come hear what experts have to say on how they have been able to leverage this trend in their particular field, where they see the industry going and what the opportunities are for entrepreneurs and others in the field.

Consumer driven healthcare will affect all pieces of the chain: providers, payors, employers and patients. Do more than be prepared, profit from this shifting dynamic. Identify potential opportunities, enable your current business to be ahead of the curve, and be aware of the lessons learned from professionals that have already been through the experience.

Join the Wharton Healthcare Club on July 10th for wine and cheese and a panel discussion with five professionals from the VC, Tech, Private Services, Insurance and Public sectors.
