Is There a Doctor in the House?: How Health Reform is Changing the Way We See Physicians
Session Description: How is healthcare reform changing who physicians are how patients access them? What are the prevailing characteristics of medical practice today, and where is medical practice headed? Will patients be able to see a physician in the future and, if not, who will see them?
These and related questions are addressed in this timely and thought provoking presentation tracing the roots of medical practice in the U.S., from the colonial times to today’s medical profession with its 200 certified specialties.
The presentation examines the current and historical physician supply and demand trends, training, practice patterns, and patient interaction. It projects how healthcare reform and related changes will reshape the way physicians practice and the ability of patients to access the physicians they need.
The Rise of Convenient Care, Retail Clinics, Healthcare Apps, and Robots
Session Description: As you walk into the Walgreen’s three-level flagship store in Washington D.C., you begin to recognize the changing face of healthcare. Walgreen’s new 24-hour location is defined by its emphasis on consumer preferences including an iPad-equipped health guide, an “Ask Your Pharmacist” desk, consultation rooms, Express Rx kiosks, a juice bar, and specially trained beauty advisers.
Increased access to medical services is part of a wider trend in which healthcare facilities are evolving away from a transactional model of care and toward an “experiential” model characterized by customer service, price transparency, provider ratings, and ease of use. In an era of physician shortages and limited access to these physicians, the convenient care model strives to reduce appointment wait times and utilize emerging technology to find new ways to access physicians.
The presentation explores the emerging practice models attempting to make healthcare more convenient and consumer-driven, including retail clinics, urgent care centers, mobile healthcare apps, physician robots, and even the re-emergence of house-calls.
