Countdown to PHA Forum 2015: Meet Sam Glick @OliverWyman

by Gregg A. Masters, MPH

‘Population health’, ‘accountable care‘, ‘personalized or precision medicine’, or more recently ‘consumer centric healthcare’ – a veritable potpourri of themes du jour or perhaps decades – and the responsible stewardship of U.S. healthcare assets are in a heightened state of dynamic tension. Some with limited ‘event horizons‘ may claim that this contemporary experience of acrimony if not industry disequilibrium, drifting and unrelenting internecine warfare centered on ‘health policy’ (i.e., the American healthcare delivery and financing ecosystem) can be laid at the doorstep of the consideration, passage and now implementation phase of the Affordable Care Act.

PHAForum_keynotesYet for those of us who have been at the strategy table and at the implementation helm for multiple decades, know the truth is a considerably more complex series of questions and answers than the pandemic of sound byte slams via ideological prisms.

So today in our series titled ‘Countdown to the Population Health Alliance (PHA) Forum 2015‘ we dive into that conversation with a seasoned executive and thought leader in the innovation space.PHA Forum 2015_OliverWyman_Consumer_Power

For timely context and consideration of the state of the healthcare ecosystem and our chat with Sam, check out Oliver Wyman’s thoughtful report: ‘The Patient to Consumer Revolution: How High Tech, Transparent Marketplaces and Consumer Power are Transforming U.S. Healthcare‘.

Our special guest is Sam Glick, Partner in Oliver Wyman’s Health and Life Sciences practice, and the San Francisco Office Leader. Sam will keynote at the PHA Forum onSafely Navigating the Consumer Healthcare Evolution‘.

His indicated interests include: consumer-centric healthcare, working with leading providers, health plans, employers, ‘enablement companies’, retailers, and venture capital firms to find innovative, engaging ways to bend [the cost] trend.

Sam is an author of several recent Oliver Wyman points of view, including ‘A Billion-Dollar Decision: Charting a New Course for US Healthcare Benefits and ‘Private Exchanges Change the Game. Sam also leads many of Oliver Wyman’s healthcare commercialization research and intellectual capital development efforts.

He is quoted regularly in both the industry and popular press.’
