What?s Next in Health Care Delivery? Minute Clinics, Concierge Medicine, and Electronic Second Opinions

Consumer demands, cost containment, and technological evolution are stimulating innovation in how and where care is delivered. From clinics in retail locations to employer-hosted facilities, virtually networked provider systems, and remote monitoring in our homes, new models are emerging rapidly. What are the risks, and which are the most promising? This session will explore the options and their impact. Victor Dzau MD, David Mandelkern and Peter Pronovost MD, discuss with Susan Penfield.
