Getting Beyond HC Reform to the Opportunities Ahead: From Policy to Purpose
In this program, Dr. Bruce Clark delivers 5 trends that will redefine our future in healthcare:
The 10 Crises Healthcare Leaders Will Face in the 21st Century
While we are living longer and better than ever, we are simultaneously heading toward a future in which chronic disease, frailty, and a variety of long-term health problems will be pervasive. From mass dementia and the caregiving crisis to intergenerational equity and "Geriassic Park," we are heading into uncharted ground. As our 50 population grows by 10,000 per day, and the 65 grow from 34 million today to 70 million by 2030, our emphasis on community-based care services will need to grow dramatically. These consumers will be both "sick and well." Is our delivery system designed for this future? This presentation explores success strategies and pathways to solutions for healthcare organizations attempting to redefine their future.
The Future of Healthcare in the Age of the "New Mature Consumer"
As the 80-million strong baby boom migrates to the second half of life, the impact on healthcare will be dramatic. This generation has transformed every stage of life that they have passed through, and now, the baby boom is about to get sick. In this session audiences learn the findings of a national survey Impact Presentations conducted with Roper Worldwide, revealing current research about this "New Mature Consumer" - from the service demands they will place on their healthcare providers to the alternative and complementary therapies they seek. Included are the findings of more than 500 physician interviews that explore their unique perspectives on the future of healthcare, career concerns, and the practice of medicine. This generation will not only be the largest mature consumer segment, it will be the longest lived. The discussion will also illustrate the profound impact this social revolution will have beyond healthcare to education, leisure, the family, media, marketing, and other American institutions.
Will We Be Good Ancestors?: The Implications of Genomics and Aging for 21st Century Healthcare
From the evolution of the "New Mature Consumer" to the influence of the sequencing of the human genome, healthcare as we know it is about to change - permanently. Will the advent of genomic medicine prove to be "a terrible gift"? How will breakthroughs in the brave new world of genomic medicine and the rising age wave dramatically alter our abilities to diagnose, treat and prevent disease? What is the profile of this "New Mature Consumer"? How will healthcare leaders address the unprecedented challenges to our concerns with privacy, risk, ethics, and cost? What are the physical, social, economic and political crises healthcare leaders will face as we age into this new future? This unique presentation/ workshop frames the key issues, explores strategies, and seeks answers to key questions healthcare leaders are about to confront in 21st century healthcare.
Marketing in the Age of the "New Mature Consumer"
Over the next decade, leading industries, companies, governments, and major institutions will be challenged to transform their strategies, marketing, branding, distribution, product development, and workforce management to fully prepare for and capitalize on key trends created by a rapidly aging population. As the 80-million strong baby boom migrates to the second half of life, the impact on marketing and sales will be dramatic. This generation has transformed every stage of life that they have passed through. This generation will not only be the largest mature consumer segment, it will be the longest lived. Are you prepared to deliver your product or services to this New Mature Consumer?
Navigating the Second Half of Life
Somebody pushed the "reset" button on life as we know it. Healthcare reform has resulted in unprecedented social division and distrust. Recent economic events have permanently changed the business and social landscape - and the dust has not settled yet. Unlike previous one-dimensional revolutions, this economic, demographic, social and technologic revolution, will impact each of us personally and professionally. All aspects of our lives will be affected as we prepare for the second half of life, and seek to successfully navigate the new lifestages of maturity.
From mass aging and the caregiving crisis to intergenerational equity and the reinvention of work and retirement, American consumers and businesses alike are unprepared for this future. Are you prepared for this future?
Dr. Bruce Clark's comprehensive multi-media presentations focus on the trends that will shape, and literally reinvent, the future and illustrate the profound impact this business/social revolution will have on retirement, healthcare, work, education, leisure, the family, media, marketing, and other American institutions.
