June 4: WHPRMS webinar on retail revolution
Hospitals, health systems, and other providers can no longer rely on the same well-worn channels for growth that have sustained them in the past. New channels—for insurance coverage, for referrals, for patient access—are disrupting established patterns. But that disruption is an opportunity for progressive organizations to deliver greater value and win market preference in new ways. The presenter is David Willis, VP of Health System Strategy and Executive Education at The Advisory Board Company. Presentation is 11 am-1 pm.
