ePatient 2015: Healthcare Associations, Are You Ready?
APRIL 10, 2014
'Excited to point you to my friend Rohit Bhargava’s new book, ePatient 2015: 15 Surprising Trends Changing Healthcare : From his blog post introducing the book , Rohit states: “As I continued thinking about the future of healthcare and watched the landscape changes happening across the world – both due to technology changes and political changes – it became clear that the story was much bigger than doctors on social networks. Something fundamental was changing in healthcare and no one was explaining it in a way that anyone could understand. The closest I ever found was Dan Roam’s amazing presentation explaining healthcare – but it was intentionally from the point of view of who pays for healthcare. I have always been more interested in how healthcare itself is changing, rather than focusing on who pays for it. So last year, I approached one of the smartest people I know in the healthcare space – a digital health care futurist and researcher named Fard Johnmar who runs his own health innovation consultancy called Enspektos. We started talking about collaborating on a book, and began the planning for it. Starting last October we began doing the research, interviewing entrepreneurs and practitioners within healthcare and conducting original research through the digihealth pulse survey – the world’s first tracking study of digitally active epatients. Together we analyzed the results and combined them with curated research from news reports, published studies and the efforts of startups across the health space. Eventually, we ended up with 15 trends that we felt defined what would matter for the future of healthcare, in the next 18 months and beyond.” There’s a ton in this deck to explain what it’s all about.
