The Future of U.S. Health Care


Mike Lovdal, PhD

Adjunct Professor, Columbia Business School,

Columbia University


What will health care look like in the future?  In the coming decades, the U.S. health care industry will be radically different from today. It is no surprise that uncertainty is one of the biggest challenges presently facing health care providers. The unknowns of reform, reimbursement, and regulations greatly affect the delivery of health care today and will continue to do so far into the foreseeable future.


Mike Lovdal, PhD, will provide a fascinating look at emerging trends that impact all sectors of health care: the move to value-based care and reimbursement, the rise of consumer-driven health care, and the new models winning in care delivery and health technology. He will also offer a framework to re-examine your organization’s business strategies in light of the unprecedented transformation health care will undergo in the next few years. Dr. Lovdal is an Adjunct Professor at Columbia Business School where he teaches a course on innovative health care models. He is a highly-regarded speaker and has presented for a variety of health care industry groups.
