1. “Keeping pace in healthcare’s transformation to consumerism”

“Consumers now expect similar experiences from healthcare organizations as other business-to-consumer interactions in their daily lives, be it with a hotel, airline or restaurant. This shift in attitude is one of the most pervasive changes in healthcare — and therefore one of the top areas of concern among executives.”

“Healthcare leaders must now devise ways to meet consumer demand while maintaining cultures of healing and stable business operations. ”


2.  “Shifting workforce demographics and rising physician burnout”
