Igniting Change in Healthcare

The role of the consumer in obtaining health services has never had such a prominent role in healthcare as it does today. Patient experience now is a key perceived “value” driver for businesses providing healthcare services. From patients, to employers in avoiding lost work days to health plans wanting to lower the costs and improve outcomes – everyone wants to know what they can expect to receive for what they pay for care. The expectation of the need to provide value to attract the healthcare consumer has never been higher.

How are innovative providers is San Antonio’s medical community finding opportunity in this new consumer-driven model? How much do markets vary in what factors result in perceived value for a health service? What is the role of data in these new models? What’s driving new entrants like Amazon to the space? Where is the opportunity and who will be the winners and losers in the marketplace? 

Join ACG/San Antonio on Tuesday, August 28, at the Plaza Club to hear our panel of experts discuss the current state of health care in San Antonio.
