CAROL FLY | HITECH ANSWERS | 17 MARCH 2016
PA Consulting Group's Bret Schroeder, healthcare expert, appeared on the HITECH Answers podcast at the HIMSS16 conference in Las Vegas to discuss the ways in which healthcare organizations can adapt to the new healthcare economy.
Bret sounds off on the innovation within the healthcare industry and the new health economy. Commenting on this further, Bret states: "A lot of what you are seeing at HIMSS today and this week is really new types of innovation and new types of businesses and helping them figure out what business they want to be in the future."
Bret continued: "There's a big push into these innovations, into wearables, into communication, mobile, telehealth, because I believe that a lot of that care going forward in the next 10 years will be taken care of at home."
Discussing M&A in the healthcare sector, Bret states: "The M&A activity that you are seeing today goes back to the transformation in the industry and the fundamental economics of all of these companies."
