The Future of Healthcare: Telehealth and Communication
How to Transform to a Better Healthcare System
Dr. Stephen K. Klasko proposes an extraordinary, even science fiction, event where a no-blaming conversation about the healthcare system leads to an optimistic new future. As a result of this bending of the time-space continuum, even Democrats and Republicans find they can collaborate on 12 disruptive transformations. Built on 100 interviews from every part of the system, Dr. Klasko and his colleagues find extraordinary solutions from medical education to reimbursement to health disparities. He will argue that if we stop blaming each other, trends we now see as disruptive will actually be solutions to healthcare in America. With an entertaining blend of humor, wit, practical assessments about the current state of healthcare, Dr. Klasko shares poignant predictions about where healthcare is heading in the future.
