For generations, healthcare has been driven by government, shaped by politics and primed for disruption. Now, technological advancement has opened the door to transformational opportunities, imperatives, and leaders who are asking fresh questions and finding answers by drawing on diverse skill sets. Observing the forces that reshaped other industries and the economy as a whole, innovators from tech and elsewhere are drawing new maps toward commonly held objectives such as better health outcomes, lower costs and reduced disparities – and their ideas are redefining what it means to be patient and healer. In this conversation, Peter Orszag – President Obama’s Director of the Office of Management and Budget through the passage of the Affordable Care Act and now Vice Chairman of investment banking, Managing Director and Global Co-Head of Healthcare at Lazard – will discuss transformations now buffeting the industry and the roles that the public and private sector will need to play going forward.
