Final Programm

Healthcare faces dramatic changes in customer behavior, market dynamics and regulatory demands. We bring a diverse and deep experience to every healthcare engagement to fuel innovation and reduce the cost and complexity of all operations. Hospitals recognize they need to deliver greater value and higher quality of care at a lower cost. 

Healthcare organizations need to be both cost effective and innovative, rebalance towards growing profit pools, implement viable leadership strategies for emerging markets, realign go-to-market systems, and address the needs of a growing range of constituents.
