The Disruptors: How Amazon, Google & Apple Plan To Change The Face Of Healthcare

Amazon, Google & Apple have ridden the wave of businesses morphing themselves from ordinary businesses to data businesses. As healthcare turns to data and digital health, they are positioning themselves in healthcare.

Amazon will use Prime to leverage into the pharmacy business. Pharmacies within Whole Foods can generate an estimated $2.3 billion of pharmacy sales. Cerner EHR has already been utilizing AWS for networking and storage for some time, but a new partnership will reportedly leverage Amazons analytics and perhaps more.

Google has been pushing relentlessly into healthcare with several large initiatives, making significant investments in health, wellness, and life sciences. Google’s machine learning is being used to interpret data from healthcare wearable. Google even has a whole division devoted to expanding the human lifespan.

Apple is counting on making the Apple Watch the default healthcare wearable, able to take and interpret heart rates, deduce blood pressure, and even measure insulin. All the while reporting this data to your healthcare provider.

Session Takeaways
We will explore how 3 of the world’s largest companies plan to dominate healthcare by leveraging their scale and data expertise,  and new technologies such as: 

  • Ambient intelligence, wearables & the Internet of healthcare things (HIoT) 
  • Artificial intelligence & quantum computing 
  • DNA data mining & predictive medicine 
  • EHRs and the Blockchain 
  • Advanced telemedicine and robotics

Wal-Mart & The Future Of Health Care

From in-store health care clinics to eyeglasses, from flu shots to urgent care, Wal-Mart has its designs on leveraging its 4000 stores into the largest force in American healthcare. How does this affect you and your industry? What are their motivations?

In 10 short years Wal-Mart become the second largest force in optometry. Their $4 prescription plan changed the face of the prescription industry.

Will Wal-Mart become the largest referral source in medicine through their 2000 planned retail health clinics? Will Wal-Mart "Mom and Pop" certain specialties into economic hardship? How will Wal-Mart's plans for Electronic Health Records (EHR) affect physician providers?

Ron's one-hour presentation "Wal-Mart & The Future of Healthcare" addresses these questions and more as you are compelled to face a new competitive force on the horizon.

Trends In Electronic Medical Records

Electronic Medical Records (EMR) is one of the areas of most intense interest in healthcare this year, due in large part to attention paid to it by the new administration. Nearly $19 billion in tax inventives are being directed to EMR adoption by hospitals and physicians.

In this presentation, Ron takes a look at 3 trends that are converging to dramatically affect this area of intense interest. First is the emergence of open source standards (OSS) in EMR software. Companies such as Microsoft and other software vendors are pushing proprietary formats for records, the analogy being the ".doc" standard in word processing. Open source advocates, including Google, are pushing for a single open standard for EMR files. Billions of dollars are at stake. Who has the advantage? Will the VA's Vista format prevail?

The second major trend in EMR is the reconciliation of privacy standards as regards the individual records themselves. How does HIPAA apply? How do individual state regulations inhibit or help the adoption of EMR? Who owns the records themselves? Are they the intellectual property of the hospital, physician, or patient? As Personal Health Records (PHR), as inplemented by Google and Dossia, increase in popularity will there be a conflict between PHR's and EMR's?

Finally, Ron will examine the role of semantics, or "tagging" of information contained in the records, and the huge part this overlooked component of EMR 2.0 will play in the coherence of EMRs, and the reason why tagging may ultimately be the driving factor in the growth of the EMR industry.

Future Money: Virtual Currencies & Payment Systems

Money is a medium of exchange. The exchange is still taking place but the “mediums” are rapidly changing. From stored value cards, to mobile device payments systems, the very nature of money is changing. The “QQ’” a virtual currency in China, is so popular it is having an effect on the money supply. A $195 million dollar bank run occurred inside a video game. Google, Paypal, and Amazon want to be your wallet. Ron examines these new forms of “Future money” and assesses their impact on our financial system.

Boxed In: Competitive Threats to Financial Services Firms

From Wal-Mart to Google, Paypal to Amazon, more and more businesses are leveraging information technology and distribution to enter the retail financial services industry.Assets are the name of the game in financial services, and there is increased pressure as financial service firms, "non-bank" banks, and now retailers are leveraging their existing distribution "footprints" to grab more of the pie.

For example, if just 5% of the people who walk into one of Wal-Mart's 4000 stores in one week opened a $3000 deposit account in a "Wal-Mart Bank," the company would raise $22 billion that week alone. Wal-Mart withdrew their ILC application, but GMAC, Merrill Lynch, and Target all have ILCs. The assets of all ILCs chartered in Utah are 12 times the assets of all Utah banks, S&L's and credit unions combined.

Meanwhile, Paypal and Google have developed payment systems that do a complete end-around the traditional banking system. All the while hedge funds use their huge, unregulated pools of capital to draw assets away from banking.

Find out how you can compete with the overwhelming distribution and resources of these emerging threats in this presentation.
