Consumer Driven PRO

Jun 18, 2019

A Message From the Editor

Check out today's lineup for a couple of articles highlighting how consumer preferences are driving change in the health care industry. Desire for convenience and access to care is expected to spur development of urgent care and retail clinics, and younger generations appear to be jeopardizing the future of the primary care physician. The question now is whether existing health systems can adapt to the new consumer-driven world or whether they'll be forced out by disruptive new entrants.
