Why this Webinar is Important

Disruption is here, blowing huge gusts of wind that force organizations to batten down the hatches and find ways to leverage change for positive gain.  No sector, across the vast spectrum of healthcare, is sheltered from profound disruption resulting from the winds of change. From medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers to payers, providers, and distributors, all sectors are precariously positioned between tailwinds of expansion, including new technologies, changing demographics and globalization, and headwinds of contraction, including rising costs, new forms of competition, and depleted capacity to innovate. Industry is replete with large companies that did not see disruption coming or did not respond to its threats and opportunities, and were rendered obsolete. 

No one wants to be the Kodak or Borders Books of the healthcare industry, where leadership positions were dithered away in the face of disruptive technology and shifting markets.  In this Webinar, A.T. Kearney healthcare industry consultants will discuss the way forward.  Through the firm’s work across all sectors of the industry, A.T. Kearney has identified five core forces, or disruptors, which point to the need for change.  The first disruptor addressed in this Webinar centers on the fact that current models are unsustainable. 

Implications for Your Organization

Healthcare organizations are dealing with complex forces that threaten their prosperity, even amidst factors that bolster the industry.  In a world where healthcare spending has skyrocketed and is expected to reach 20 percent of GDP by 2020, it is increasingly difficult for all sectors to maintain healthy profits and serve the needs of consumers with quality solutions. Organizations must find ways to adapt to changes introduced by government regulations, generic drugs, depleted product portfolios, rising costs, and more. The way forward will include new partnerships and alliances, new technologies and advanced data analytics, new markets and go-to-market strategies, new service offerings, and many more changes yet to come. Please join us for a lively discussion where you will take away many practical insights for your organization.
