The Future of Health Care in 2021 and Beyond

Featuring strategic industry advisors: Lisa Bielamowicz, MD and Chas Roades of Gist Healthcare

Thursday October 22, 2020 - 12:00-1:45 p.m.
As coronavirus has impacted communities and healthcare delivery across the country, it has become clear we won’t be going back to “business as usual”, and this period will have longstanding structural ramifications for our industry — care delivery models, consumer patterns, insurance coverage, policy environment, and workforce configuration. Even as providers and payers continue to focus on short-term response and recovery, strategic opportunities are emerging for health systems, payers, and disruptors to pursue growth prospects and reshape care delivery.

Some questions that will be addressed during this webinar include:

  • How will the 2020 elections impact the industry?
  • How will the strategies of retail and technology disruptors shift?
  • What impact will an economic recession have on employer sponsored health insurance?

Tufts Health Plan and Tufts Health Freedom Plan are pleased to host this webinar examining how larger regulatory, political and market trends facing the healthcare industry will be shaped by the pandemic. You’ll hear from our two guest presenters, the co-founders of Gist Healthcare, a highly regarded, independent strategic advisory firm.
